Organización Waorani de Pastaza (OWAP)

$5,000 to support Indigenous leader from Ecuador, Nemonte Nenquimo, the co-founder of the Indigenous organization Ceibo Alliance and the first woman leader of the Waorani people to attend Climate Week in New York City to share lessons learned and engage people through events and dialogues around next steps to secure long term protection for the Upper Amazon through Indigenous-led solutions. Nenquimo is taking part in Climate Week events in New York this year in the wake of a historic climate victory: the passing of a national referendum in Ecuador to protect the Yasuní rainforest, one of the most biodiverse places on Earth.
