      Land, Territory and natural resources are not only viewed as an economic resource for the survival of indigenous peoples, but also identity. The identity of an existence that is contained within a value system: social, cultural and spiritual, inherited from generation to generation. Many of the permit issued by central and local government are without due process of FPIC (Free prior and informed consent). The arrival of development project permits are putting indigenous peoples as a spectator of development, not as an actor. The indigenous peoples are becoming poorer. They increasingly no longer have access to nearby resources that had been sustaining them. A lot of the problem faced by indigenous peoples are due to no recognition and protection of the rights of indigenous peoples . The most obvious today in Indonesia is the seizure of land, indigenous territories and natural resources that they have mastered and managed for generations. Directed by Nanang Sujana for Indigenous Peoples’ Alliance of the Archipelago (AMAN)

              Over US$5bn has been committed to REDD Projects in the last few years and promises of many more billions have been made. As of September 2011, the main global REDD database had 480 registered projects in 36 countries amounting to $3.35bn. The vast majority of these projects are on Indigenous lands and/or territories. The scale of the REDD experiment, combined with the lack of relevant experience with REDD+ projects, has meant that projects have confronted considerable problems and delays. A recent global review of REDD+ projects noted that they face many challenges, including: criteria for sustainable forest management, monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, local tenure arrangements, permanence and baseline issues that can be effectively addressed only if local communities are able to properly participate in the REDD+ projects. The review also found that despite widespread recognition that local ownership is key to REDD+ success, the scope and intensity of their participation has not always been adequate and often there is lack of clarity about their role in implementation.
