CCMLCIP Cairns 2012 - Climate Change Mitigation Meeting
Climate Change Mitigation with Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples:
Practices, Lessons Learned and Prospects
26-28 March 2012, Cairns, Australia
OVERVIEW | INTRODUCTION | BACKGROUND NOTE | PROGRAMME | SOCIAL MEDIA | OUTCOMES
United Nations University (UNU), in collaboration with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the Australian Government Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD), the Secretariat of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the North Australian Indigenous Land and Sea Management Alliance (NAILSMA) are holding a workshop on “Climate Change Mitigation with Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples: Practices, Lessons Learned and Prospects”.
The workshop aims to reflect the wide and diverse range of perspectives concerning indigenous peoples/local communities and climate change responses (including mitigation); support the build-up of understanding and peer-reviewed literature in the field of indigenous peoples, local communities and climate change mitigation; and to compile regional and local data and grey literature that are relevant for understanding climate change mitigation at the local level. It will also support indigenous peoples’, local communities’ and developing country scientists’ engagement and research in international climate dialogues. The workshop also intends to provide policy-makers with policy relevant information on mitigation, indigenous peoples and local communities. Selected papers will be considered for publication in a Special Issue of a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
The workshop was held from 26-28 March 2012 in Cairns, Australia and is the second workshop of the series (the first workshop on Adaptation and Vulnerability was held in Mexico City in July 2011).
