Indigenous Peoples Climate Change Assessment (IPCCA)

Sam Johnston


UNU's activities

The IPCCA, a UNU Institute for Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS) project, aims to develop a series of indigenous assessments of climate change that will promote effective engagement of indigenous people in the climate change processes at all relevant levels. In particular, it will provide a basis for effective indigenous participation in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) processes and other national and international climate change processes, and incorporate indigenous knowledge into the 5th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
