Led by a Goldman Prize winner, FENAMAD (Federación Nativa del Río Madre de Dios y Afluentes) is a regional indigenous organisation that represents 36 communities of the Madre de Dios region of Peru, one of the most biodiverse but threatened parts of the Amazon. FENAMAD was created by indigenous communities to channel their proposals to governments and other actors, and to help promote indigenous rights and well-being. With the ForestLink system, RFUK and FENAMAD have created a community forest observatory that is at the forefront of rights based solutions to climate change.
