 Indigenous mountain communities call on governments to support traditional knowledge-based adaptation
A newly established International Network of Mountain Indigenous Peoples has released a declaration that calls on governments to support adaptation based on traditional knowledge which is specific to local contexts, support indigenous agricultural traditions that provide important food crops for global food security, and respect the indigenous world views and cultural and spiritual values that underpin these.  The network was formed to exchange knowledge and seeds for adaptation in mountain ecosystems, given their particular vulnerability to climate change impacts.
