Indigenous and local knowledge dialogue workshop on the nexus and transformative change assessments

Event type: Task force
Wednesday, 29 June, 2022 - Friday, 01 July, 2022

Workshop report available here

This first dialogue provides an opportunity for Indigenous peoples and local communities (IPLCs) to discuss with assessment authors. The aim is for IPLCs to directly contribute to the framing of the two new assessments. Specific aims include:

  • Exploring how IPLCs experience, understand and manage the nexus of biodiversity, food, water and health;
  • Exploring how IPLCs understand transformative change, their visions for the future, and pathways and challenges for achieving these visions;
  • Developing recommendations from IPLCs for specific topics and areas of foci for the assessments;
  • Develop a series of key ILK questions and themes, which will help shape narratives for the assessments and direct the collection, analysis and synthesis of information;
  • Beginning to develop case studies of relevance to the assessments;
  • Determining key experts who can contribute to the assessments as contributing authors or participants in future dialogue workshops and review processes; and  
  • Identifying resources and sources of information that could be included in the assessments.
