Indigenous Climate Change Impacts Observation Network
The potential of Indigenous and local knowledge to contribute to climate research is being investigated by the Local Indicators of Climate Change Impacts (LICCI) project. Nevertheless, the LICCI project does not sufficiently contribute to bringing Indigenous Knowledge (IK) and perspectives into climate change research and policy.
The ICCION project, an EU-funded proof-of-concept, aims to bring IK and experience to climate change research and policy fora. In partnership with Indigenous representatives and communities and via the OpenTEK platform, this project will co-design a network that could contribute to strengthening Indigenous Peoples recognition and participation in international climate change research and policy fora.
