Ahead of the 2017 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP23), the UNESCO Local and Indigenous Knowledge Systems programme (LINKS) is inviting key partners and institutions to share their own successes and lessons learned in mobilizing local and indigenous knowledge for climate change. The conference seeks to facilitate transdisciplinary, multi-stakeholder knowledge platforms and climate change observing systems in key climate-vulnerable regions and create synergies with existing initiatives.

The outcomes of this meeting will feed into LINKS priority activities within the framework of the programme’s strategy on climate change and indigenous knowledge, and provide support to the UNFCCC platform discussions.
