Panelists at the side event included Almir Suruí, Chief of the Suruí people, Rebecca Moore of Google, Tony Brunello, Deputy Secretary for Climate Change and the Environment for the State of California, and representatives from Fundación Amigos de la Naturaleza Bolivia, La Confederación Nacional de Pueblos Indígenas de Bolivia (CIDOB), and Instituto Socioambiental (ISA).
