Indigenous people’s knowledge in global climate policy
The potential of Indigenous and local knowledge to contribute to climate research is being investigated by the Local Indicators of Climate Change Impacts project. Nevertheless, the LICCI project does not sufficiently contribute to bringing Indigenous peoples and local communities’ (IPLCs) knowledge and perspectives into climate change research and policy. The ICCION project, an EU-funded proof-of-concept, aims to bring IPLC knowledge and experience to climate change research and policy fora. In partnership with representatives of several IPLCs, this project will co-design a digital Indigenous Climate Change Impacts Observation Network (ICCION) that could contribute to strengthening IPLC effective participation in climate change science and policy fora.
