About the Course

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....

The course has been very helpful to understand the context of the LICCI project, the data collection protocol as well as the functioning of the LEK platform. The Climate Governance section in Week 5 was very helpful for me. On the climate change concepts and impacts I have been wokring on this topic many years, but it was still good for refreshing. I also liked it a lot that there were different experts giving the lessons. Congratulations to the whole team.

It a comprehensive introduction to the topic it deals with and I particularly found the quizes interesting because of the structuring of those in a way it demands our active engagement with the questions and the topics.

Well organised and presented course. It offers us a full and detailed insight on the climate crisis and the importance of the Indigenous Nations in our struggle to have a sustainable future!

Really challenging course. It gives a broad understanding of both the historical milestones of policy making for Climate Change and Indigenous People and Local Communities but also allows to understand how to apply knowledge to field work and conduct research that can be shared in a global database.

Very well put together and extremely interesting course.

I would like to contact you about some research I'm developing to look for entry points on the "inter-operability" of formal health management information systems community based information for health in lower and middle income countries. This is becoming an important new focus in the health sector and I think many of the concepts and systems you've been developing could be important inputs to our thinking.

Could you put me in touch with the right person to talk to in your institution? I'm resident in Catalunya and could easily travel to Barcelona for in-person discussions.

Excellent course that provides very interesting and useful material! An excellent starting point to understanding environmental policy and justice and how that relates to indigenous rights and challenges faced by indigenous communities.

I loved this course but i would say that the time associated with how long it would take to read all of the papers was very inaccurate. Thank you for this content though it was brilliant!

A very in depth and informative course. Highly recommend to anyone who is interested in learning about climate change impacts on Indigenous people and local communities; along with the different forms of adaptation and study methods used in climate research.
