Indigenous Women Voices on Climate Change

Indigenous Information Network (IIN) has been doing work on capacity
building, training and creating awareness on climate change and the relation
to conservation of Biodiversity while at the same time connecting it with
traditional knowledge. Indigenous peoples have an intrinsic relationship
with the environment and are dependent on natural resources for their
economic, social and cultural activities. In Africa, indigenous peoples
mostly inhabit arid and semi-arid lands, and a few of them live in forest
areas which are threatened by increased climate change impacts such as
prolonged drought, desertification, floods and increased temperatures
which has impacted on the loss of Biodiversity and further impacting on
indigenous peoples’ livelihoods.
