Accredited professionals: Victoria Reyes García, Sandrine Gallois, André Braga Junqueira, Xiaoyue Li, and Ramin Soleymani-Fard will be the instructors guiding students through the syllabus and lessons.
Climate change is a global phenomenon, but its impacts vary among different social groups, who perceive and adapt to climate change impacts in different ways. In this course, you will:
a) understand the different debates around climate change impacts on Indigenous Peoples and local communities (IPLC);
b) familiarize yourself with different impacts of climate change on IPLC, with the IPLC understanding of climate change impacts and with their strategies to adapt to climate change; and
c) learn about different strategies to incorporate Indigenous peoples and local communities in climate change research and policy.
The course includes a theoretical and a methodological component, through which you will learn methodologies to conduct research on Indigenous Peoples and local communities’ perceptions of climate change impacts.
