The knowledge and practices of Indigenous Peoples have developed over long timescales in response to changing, and sometimes extreme, environmental conditions, to maintain both human wellbeing and the ecosystems to which it is deeply connected.
Indigenous knowledge therefore has potential to inspire innovations that can be replicated to contribute towards national and international targets for climate mitigation, adaptation, and sustainable development. Through this project, indigenous communities from 3 continents reflect on their own way of life and their turbulent experiences of environmental, economic and social policies, to present their own visions for just and environmentally sensitive paths forward.
