COVID-19 and Public Health: Indigenous Peoples on the Front Line
This webinar will discuss the connection between land rights, climate and the health of Indigenous Peoples -- based on the continuous evidence that the damage caused to the planet will bring more zoo-tropic diseases. Officials from the World Health Organisation (WHO), the United Nations (UN) and the World Wildlife Fund International (WWF) have directly linked the emergence of pandemics like Coronavirus to our “broken relationship with nature,” epitomized by the destruction of natural habitats and the collapse of biodiversity. They call for a shift back to ecological and ecosystem integrity, sustainable co-existence with the natural world, values which have underpinned indigenous values for centuries, making indigenous peoples key actors in the battle to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
