  • Promote a transdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and experiences amongst indigenous peoples, governments and scientists
  • Understand the contributions that diverse knowledge systems can make to reinforce the climate change knowledge base
  • Highlight practical community-based solutions and initatives to address the impacts of climate change
