Climate change has species on the move, with major consequences for biodiversity and human communities. Building resilience has never been more important and Indigenous Peoples are showing the way.
Shifts in the distribution of land, marine and freshwater species caused by climate change are a growing cause of species extinction, conflict, and major economic uncertainty, says a major new study that highlights the extent of these species shifts.
Published in the prestigious journal, Science, the study recognises the crucial role knowledge held by the world's indigenous peoples has to play in conservation and ecological restoration efforts that help build resilience to climate change.
