Indigenous Peoples’ Low Carbon and Climate-Friendly Sustainable Livelihoods

Print Email
 
Traditional livelihoods of indigenous peoples, which are proven to be sustainable over generations, are usually regarded as insignificant, obsolete, impractical and not financially gainful. These are not recognized as a distinct production force and system contributing to the overall economic well-being of local communities and the country, in general.

Contrary to claims, traditional livelihood systems of indigenous peoples are still very vibrantly practiced and contribute—not only to food security and subsistence—but to the overall well-being of their communities.
