Juan Pablo Sarmiento Barletti (MA, MRes, PhD) carries out mixed-methods research on multiple aspects of the impact of natural resource extraction on forest-dependent communities, and of the participation of the latter in different related decision-making spaces. Juan Pablo participates in CIFOR’s Global Comparative Study of REDD+ (seconded from PUCP), a project examining the potential role of these initiatives in transforming BAU decision-making practices in order to create more equitable outcomes for forest-dependent communities. As part of his wider work, Juan Pablo is also interested in exploring the real and potential transgressions of indigenous rights throughout REDD+ readiness and implementation phases around the world, and the potential application of this framework as a pro-rights tool that enables environmental justice for indigenous communities.
