Dear Our initiatives to Contribute to the Global Climate Crisis Solutions
Presented at the UNFCCC International Forum 7-18 December 2009
Dear to All Delegates..
Our are representatives from Dayak Ngaju tribe in Central Borneo, Indonesia, we will here to explain what we will do to give some solutions for discussed at the International Forum on Climate Change in Copenhagen, Danish, starting on 7 until December, 18 , 2009.
Natural resources of peat land as a local resource in the know since a long-established, as a source of livelihood support needs of hereditary family life, from taking non-timber forest products, rattan plantations, rubber plantations, lowland rice farming, fishing in rivers, lake, chisel, handil, beje (fish ponds) based on our local rules and wisdom.
Our long runs period, we have a peaceful with our families and children of our generation. Utilization of peat separately by way of seizure development, clearing and destruction of the development model implemented by the government under pressure from the International World. Exploitation by name Pretext of National Food for 1996, covering 1.4 million hectares of peat forest in the best tripe of woods taken in exports, burning our gardens and our forests, made a giant canals. More than 82,000 of our people suffering, all of our being a poor man, our land dry, easy to burn and made a huge flood. Is this what is called development? Is this what they called a peace?
Development in many developing countries being failure, increase the misery of the people, the people's poverty, environmental destruction, disaster, water availability is threatened, vulnerable food, plague continued to spread. This is a sign that the Earth's climate has changed. For this situation, developed countries should be responsible for what you all do, do not be in charge to the people in our country and Dayak tribe in Kalimantan.
International Forum on Climate Change that we respect .
Today we was contribute to saving the earth and mankind, by planting 50,000 hectares of trees, the rehabilitation of 13,000 hectares of rattan plantation, 5,000 hectares of rubber plantations, gardens purun, traditional fish ponds, a traditional fields, protecting 200,000 hectares of indigenous people’s forest. This is our effort to communicate to the Government of Indonesia and the forum on climate change in Bali - December 2007, Bangkok - October 2009 and is currently in Copenhagen in December 2009. However, all parties to ignore that we donated. We urge the State -1 annex as: American, Canadian, British, Dutch, French, Japanese, decreasing their carbon emissions immediately, and do not hide behind the projects, carbon trading, REDD, Nuclear Power Development and pay the money for the sins that they do..
We appreciate that in principle by the Forum in order to save the Earth, but the forum UNFCCC can learn from us, how to save the world's peat lands and climate, and declined the offer annex-1 countries that do not concern a sense of environmental justice and global climate.
We urge the forum COP 15 UNFCCC negotiations, break off negotiations under the pretext of conservation to climate change. Because behind the, there is a large project negotiations mining, oil palm plantations, Forest Plantation, which will add more damage to this earth. These negotiations have forced the developing countries (including Indonesia) became colonized countries had the mastery of natural resources through a scheme of climate solutions.
International Forum on Climate Change that we respect ....
We urge the UNFCCC in Copenhagen Forum 2009 initiative to immediately recognize our (and all indigenous peoples in the world) in safe the earth and human being based on our wisdom.
We are the people of the independent nation from all of colonialism. But what happens, we excluded from our land, our own forests, we became spectators in our own land. We will rise against the injustice of global development, against the injustice of climate crisis solutions our way of life and protect the forest, peat and the lives of our generation.
Thank you for your attention.
