Indigenous Women have close ties with nature socially, culturally and economically. The changing climate is impacting them and the natural resources they depend upon. In Asia, Indigenous Women are taking initiatives to adapt to climate change impacts. They are playing an active role in mainstreaming climate-resilient livelihoods in the region. Cuso International and Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP), with the support of the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and Global Affairs Canada, together with national partners Cambodia Indigenous Peoples Organization (CIPO), Gender Development Association (GDA), May Doe Kabar (MDK), and Centre for Sustainable Development in Mountainous Areas (CSDM), are amplifying the voices of Indigenous Women and their role in climate change adaptation through Climate Smart Women Connect. Through this initiative, we aim to jumpstart discussions toward a more inclusive climate policy that value Indigenous Women’s voices.
