Indigenous Navigator: Indigenous knowledge and data to secure Indigenous Peoples’ rights and manage the risks and in restoration of the impacts of climate change
December 1, 2023 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm +04
Indigenous knowledge is knowledge that belongs to Indigenous Peoples found in their territories, and their knowledge system embodies both traditional knowledge and practices and innovation and discoveries that Indigenous Peoples continue to develop for their common good. According to AIPP, Indigenous knowledge held by individuals, knowledge-holders, or groups, is of crucial importance to maintaining Indigenous cultural identity, creating solutions to conflict through indigenous justice, managing the risks and impacts of climate change, protecting biodiversity, achieving sustainable development, and building resilience in the face of extreme events such as those resulting from climate change, environmental destruction, or zoonotic diseases.
During this event in the IP Pavilion, local Indigenous leaders from Asia, Latin America, and Africa will have opportunity to share their experiences in advocating for the respect and implementation of their rights and the critical role of the Indigenous Navigator in monitoring the rights of Indigenous Peoples and enhancing Indigenous Peoples’ opportunity to collect data on their situation to maintain Indigenous cultural identity, creating solutions to conflict through indigenous justice, managing the risks and impacts of climate change, protecting biodiversity, achieving sustainable development.
