In addition to issues of land return, Traditional Knowledge (collective IP rights), and Community Law, one of the issues most affecting Indigenous communities involves climate change. While the Indigenous Peoples of our globe have not benefitted from industrialization, the collateral damage to the environment has been devastating to many of their communities.
With rising tides, warmer temperatures and water shortages, traditional ways of life are at risk of extinction. Claes Andreasson, the late Swedish journalist and former morning man on Swedish national television, investigated how global climate change has disrupted the Americas and Indigenous communities in particular.
