LUCSUS seminar: Climate induced hydrological impacts on Indigenous Peoples. A preliminary assessment of how the integration of Indigenous knowledge can facilitate adaptation and reduce vulnerability
Welcome to a seminar with invited speaker Martina Angela Caretta (LU KEG)
Anchored in the understanding that there are substantial ontological differences between Western positivistic knowledge and Indigenous knowledge, in her talk Dr Caretta will outline existing evidence on climate induced hydrological impacts on Indigenous Peoples. She will then present the emerging results of a systematic review of Indigenous knowledge-led adaptation in the water sector.

She is the Coordinating Lead Author of the “Water” Chapter in the forthcoming (March 2022) WGII IPCC 7th Assessment Report. She is a feminist geographer with expertise in water, climate change adaptation, gender and participatory methodologies. She has carried out extensive fieldwork in East Africa, Latin America and Appalachia. Her work has been published in Gender, Place and Culture; Annals of the AAG, Climate & Development, Frontiers Water, Qualitative Research among others.
