How have Indigenous Peoples and local communities adapted to, and built their resilience to the severe results of climate change which is affecting their ways of living? Also, how are their land rights central to this process? In this third episode of the Land Dialogues series, we will be discussing some of the common factors affecting the resilience of Indigenous Peoples and local communities. Mainly, we will be focusing on the connections between territory, Indigenous knowledge and learning, as well as solidarity, which help Indigenous communities to cope and adapt to their changing environment.
The Convention of Parties (CoP) has now highlighted the need to recognize the knowledge, technologies, practices and efforts of Indigenous Peoples and local communities related to addressing and responding to climate change. Indigenous knowledge thus makes an important contribution to climate change policy, and Sustainable Development Goal 13 on climate action; by observing changing climates, adapting to its impacts and contributing to global mitigation efforts. However, more must be done to incorporate this indispensable knowledge into climate adaptation and resilience systems.
Join us in examining these vital interconnections and the way forward towards climate security.
