CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Indigenous Peoples, Marginalized Populations and Climate Change | Land Portal | Securing Land Rights Through Open Data
Language of the news reported: 

United Nations University (UNU), Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) are co-organising two workshops on “Indigenous Peoples, Marginalized Populations and Climate Change.” The workshops will bring together representatives of indigenous peoples and marginalized populations, natural and social scientists, and other experts in relevant domains. The aim of the workshops is to identify, compile and analyse relevant indigenous and local observations, knowledge and practices related to understanding climate change impacts, adaptation and mitigation. The workshops will provide a key opportunity to ensure that experience, sources of information and knowledge (scientific, indigenous and local), along with data and literature (scientific and grey), focusing on vulnerable and marginalized regions of the world are made available to the authors of the IPCC 5th Assessment Report and the global community.

The workshop secretariat is now calling for the submission of abstracts for the first workshop, which will focus on Climate Change Vulnerability, Adaptation and Traditional Knowledge. The workshop will be held in collaboration with the Mexican National Institute of Ecology (INE) from 19-21 July 2011 in Mexico City, Mexico.

Submissions should be relevant to the workshop theme – Climate Change Vulnerability, Adaptation and Traditional Knowledge. Submissions are sought from researchers and knowledge holders from around the globe. Contributions from individuals and communities in developing countries and/or marginalised regions are encouraged.

Deadline: March 18, 2011
