This Fellowship was established to create opportunities for leaders and scholars from indigenous and traditional peoples communities and organizations to explore solutions to the impacts of climate change and the threats to ecosystems and biodiversity that are affecting their lands, communities and livelihoods.
The program focuses on two very important areas:
1. a professional development component for the selected candidate, including trainings, classes, and attendance at national and international meetings; and
2. support for a research project into the contribution of traditional knowledge in adapting to climate change and/or maintaining healthy ecosystems and biodiversity, and the linkages between traditional knowledge and science and new technologies in order to inform policy and action on the ground.
