Exploring the Role of Traditional Ecological Knowledge in Climate Change Initiatives
Kirsten Vinyeta (au); Kathy Lynn (au)
Indigenous populations are projected to face disproportionate impacts as a result of climate change in comparison to nonindigenous populations. For this reason, many American Indian and Alaska Native tribes are identifying and implementing culturally appropriate strategies to assess climate impacts and adapt to projected changes. Traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) has the potential to play a central role in both indigenous and nonindigenous climate change initiatives. The detection of environmental changes, the development of strategies to adapt to these changes, and the implementation of sustainable land-management principles can all be informed by TEK. Although there is a significant body of literature on traditional knowledge, this report examines literature that specifically explores the relationship between TEK and climate change. It describes the potential role of TEK in climate change assessment and adaptation efforts. It also identifies some of the challenges and benefits associated with merging TEK with Western science, and reviews the way in which federal policies and administrative practices facilitate or challenge the incorporation of TEK in climate change initiatives. This is a print on demand report.
