One of the Indigenous Caucusís mentioned in an opening statement on November 29, 2010 at Cancun that ďItís a matter of life and death if they come out with wrong solutions. REDD threatens our human rights, including our right to free prior and informed consent among many others. Our land and territories, food sovereignty, biodiversity, cultural practices and traditional life styles are being placed in further jeopardy, and we reject these false solutions.Ē

In above context, the latest report of Forest Right Act Committee- Link (Forest Right Act (FRA)-2006 provides certain rights on forest to forest dwellers), the committee members field visits observed that, the provision of the FRA were violated, and Forest officials in many places in India have summarily evicted forest dwellers.
