Indig. Perspectives on Climate Change: Australia 1

As part of the United Nations University's innovative and interactive Our World 2.0 web-based project, the United Nations University - Institute of Advanced Studies Traditional Knowledge Initiative (UNU-IAS TKI) and the UNU Media Studio in conjunction with the Kowanyama Aboriginal Land and Natural Resources Management Office, Cape York Peninsular, Australia presents a video brief about the effects of climate change on Kowanyama, a coastal indigenous community in tropical Queensland, Australia.

The short presentation is told from the perspectives of the Aboriginal community of Kowanyama in Northern Australia and highlights the impacts of rising sea levels on the community due to climatic global warming.

The video brief complements the on-going work of the Indigenous Peoples Climate Change Assessment as part of UNU-IAS TKI's Traditional Knowledge and Climate Change programme. This is the first in a series of six web episodes highlighting indigenous perspectives on climate change.
