New Report Makes Recommendations Dealing with Indigenous Peoples and Climate Change

A new study, Indigenous and Traditional Peoples and Climate Change, produced by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature seeks to better understand the potential impacts of climate change on the livelihoods and cultures of indigenous and traditional communities. It goes on to developing related recommendations, including: formulate policies that actively involve indigenous and traditional communities in the international, regional and local climate change discourse; recognize and actively promote indigenous adaptation strategies; and monitor the implications of mitigation efforts including the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and Reduced Emissions from Deforestation in Developing countries (REDD) on indigenous and traditional peoples.
