    channel: Traditional Knowledge & Climate Science

    Indigenous peoples’ resilience is rooted in traditional knowledge and their deep understanding of the land.

    For indigenous peoples, resilience is rooted in traditional knowledge, as their capacity to adapt to environmental change is based first and foremost on in-depth understanding of the land.

    As climate change increasingly impacts indigenous landscapes, communities are responding and adapting in unique ways.

    Can REDD forests ever become green? Social and other safeguards are needed if REDD initiatives are to cut GHG emissions while doing no harm and benefiting indigenous peoples.

    Deforestation, especially of tropical forests, makes up 18 percent of annual global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions — more emissions than the entire global transportation sector.

    REDD initiatives aim to reduce GHG emissions by assigning forests a monetary value based on their capacity to absorb and store atmospheric carbon. REDD+ initiatives attempt to incorporate additional sources of forest value, such as ecosystem services, biodiversity conservation, and local livelihoods.

    Both REDD and REDD+ approaches feed into carbon markets that are supposed to generate significant financial flows from companies with high degrees of GHG emissions in developed countries toward less polluting, carbon-neutral or carbon-negative activities in developing countries.

    Energy innovation and traditional knowledge: Renewables-based energy sovereignty can revitalize indigenous communities while mitigating climate change impacts.

    The growing awareness of the reality of climate change and its accompanying impacts and risks is causing many to rethink current energy policies and to reconsider the reliance on conventional energy sources that have contributed to creating the global climate crisis.

    Although many countries are looking toward low-carbon technologies and clean, renewable energy sources to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, fossil fuels are still our primary energy source, as illustrated in BP’s 2012 Statistical Review of World Energy.

    Sea Level Rise in Kowanyama

    channel: Climate Changed World

    Inherkowinginambana, from Kowanyama - a coastal Aboriginal community in tropical Queensland, Australia - works with other local elders to protect Aboriginal country and culture.

    “When that whole ocean comes and rises up, where are we going to go?” ponders Inherkowinginambana. “Every year it (the tide) comes in, it goes a bit further up once it hits the swamps, that will kill all the plant life, and the waterways.” As a traditional knowledge coordinator, Inherkowinginambana travels with the local rangers and various traditional owners to visit different cultural sites that are being rapidly changed by saltwater rise.

    The effects of climate change on indigenous communities living on a sandy island in Papua New Guinea.

    Nicholas Hakata, a local youth leader, explains that with sea level rise, he and his family have been surviving on fish and coconuts, and battling malaria-infected swamp mosquitoes. With doos aid ships coming twice a year, the relocation plans are slow. Hungry and frustrated, Islanders have set up their own relocation team and have begun the urgent tasks of moving their families closer to security.
