Event Details

Indigenous Peoples are key to ambitious climate action living in areas of high biodiversity and stark climate impacts. Indigenous Peoples are guardians of the social and ecological systems crucial to countering and living with climate change, yet research is usually implemented without them. This discussion brings together Indigenous Peoples, policy makers, and research funders from around the world to highlight the benefits of integrating – not only Indigenous knowledge, but Indigenous Peoples – into research, and to promote Indigenous self-determination in research. This event is hosted by Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, an organisation in Canada that advances and protects the interests of Inuit in Canada, who are leaders in advancing this area of research.
