The Involvement of local communities and lay citizens in data collection holds the potential to increase local agency for adaptation.

The Inventory of local indicators of climate change impacts collected through this project will improve our understanding of the localized responses of the physical and biological systems to climate change.

Data on perceptions of climate change impacts will improve our understanding of the perceived impacts of climate change on local livelihoods, improving our understanding of the human dimensions of climate change. This will guide policies attempting to mitigate its immediate impacts.

The creation of a web-based platform that will be fed by researchers, practitioners, Indigenous Peoples and local communities, or other citizens who will contribute to this project data collection and who might – ultimately – form an observation network for the long-term monitoring of local indicators of climate change impacts.

The Project

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.
