Forst will give opening comments on the importance of environmental defenders and the role COP28 should play in enhancing protections for defenders and providing means to document, report, and investigate threats and attacks.
At least 1,390 land and environmental defenders have been killed since COP21.
Following Forst, we will hear from Wet’suwet’en land defender Eve Saint, Colombian water protector Yuli Velasquez, Global Witness policy advisor Javier Garate, and Climate Action Network-Canada campaigner Emily Lowan.
