Invaluable knowledge for a changing planet
There are more than 370 million self-identified indigenous people in some 70 countries around the world. But, far too often, they continue to face discrimination and their voices continue to go unheard.
Indigenous peoples have a special role to play in the conservation and sustainable management of natural resources. Their in-depth, varied and locally rooted knowledge can help the world adapt to, and mitigate, the consequences of climate change.
These communities have unique food systems anchored in sustainable livelihood practices, which are adapted to the specific ecosystems of their territories. Women, in particular, are full of untapped potential as stewards of natural resources and biodiversity. They are guardians of cultural diversity and peace brokers in conflict resolution.
