This study underscores the importance of the experience of indigenous peoples in the climate change debate by focusing on their twin roles: a) as sentinels by cataloguing actual current impacts, rather than projections and speculations; and b) as innovators by reviewing the implementation of local adaptation and mitigation measures. This survey is a valuable resource for environmentalists, scholars, indigenous peoples’ organizations and policy-makers.
