Policy Training for Holders of Traditional Knowledge

Sam Johnston

UNU's activities

Training to facilitate the participation and empowerment of Traditional Knowledge (TK) holders in the UNFCCC processes and other relevant policy processes is a vital need. Responding to the numerous calls for a short explanatory and introductory guide for indigenous people, the UNU Institute of Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS) prepared a series of short guides to help Indigenous communities navigate the current international debate on climate change.

The UNU-IAS TK Guide Series includes:

  1. Emissions Trading and Carbon Financing Guide;
  2. REDD Guide for Indigenous Peoples;
  3. Carbon Guide for Northern Indigenous Australians and
  4. An introductory Guide to the UNFCCC process
