Balancing Acts: Navigating Economic Development, Indigenous Empowerment and Climate Protection in Global Governance

Juan Pablo Gómez Moreno


This article delves into the complex interplay between climate change, indigenous rights, and economic interests, examining legal frameworks, historical contexts, and contemporary developments. Evaluating international agreements and case law, it highlights the growing recognition of the interconnectedness between indigenous rights and climate change, emphasizing the pivotal role of FPIC. The study dissects economic interests, revealing power dynamics in transnational initiatives that often marginalize indigenous communities. Contributions to legal and environmental discourse include nuanced perspectives on corporate accountability and the need for refined global climate governance. Implications for future research and policy underscore the call for enhanced accountability mechanisms and the active integration of indigenous rights in climate agreements for a more equitable and sustainable future.
