The latest International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report tells us that we need global, coordinated, and immediate efforts to mitigate climate change if we are to keep temperatures from rising to catastrophic levels for our planet and people. Arctic Indigenous Peoples have been stewards of these northern regions for tens of thousands of years.

In this talk, Dr. Dorough will discuss the global leadership roles, perspectives, and knowledge that Inuit and other Arctic Indigenous Peoples bring to climate change solutions and decision-making within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Paris Climate Agreement, and the IPCC. Dr. Dorough will also discuss the importance of Indigenous-led climate solutions in the future of Arctic research and planning.

The Institute of Arctic Studies in the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding (Dartmouth College) will conduct the webinar on September 20, 4:30-6:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
