climate change affects Indigenous Peoples

Indigenous peoples are some of the most affected by climate change. It is therefore extremely important that The Paris Agreement recognizes the rights of indigenous peoples in its preamble and that indigenous communities are included in relevant processes.

Kathrin Wessendorf talks about the effect of climate change on Indigenous Peoples. She is an expert on indigenous peoples and climate change. She is currently managing IWGIA’s climate change programme which aims at linking the local and national realities to the international level through advocacy at the UN Convention on Climate Change and the Green Climate Fund. Kathrin has worked with indigenous peoples living in the Arctic and represents IWGIA in the Arctic Council. Kathrin has an education in Social Anthropology from Basel University, Switzerland, with special focus on indigenous peoples’ governance systems in the Arctic (particularly Nunavut, Canada).
