The Contribution of Local Knowledge to Climate Change Research
Partner and Collaborator Network
We have trained more than 40 partners and collaborators that are doing fieldwork all over the world, exploring the Local Indicators of Climate Change Impacts perceived by Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities.
We are creating a web-based platform in which any citizen in the world will be able to contribute information on local indicators of climate change impacts, and researchers will be able to connect to each other to exchange knowledge and data.
LICCI – Local Indicators of Climate Change Impacts: the contribution of local knowledge to climate change research – is a European Research Council (ERC) funded project aiming to bring indigenous and local knowledge to climate change research. Through cutting-edge science, we strive to deepen our understandings of perceived climate change impacts, and endeavor to bring indigenous and local knowledge into policy-making processes and influence international climate change negotiations. The LICCI team is dedicated to creating a wide network, which encompasses researchers, practitioners, and the general public who are interested in indigenous and local knowledge systems and climate change.
