Editor’s Note: Continuing our coverage of indigenous climate adaptation.

The video Nhawul Bultijubul Ma (To see with both eyes) discusses the indigenous experience of climate change and their efforts to adapt.

Fillmed at the Yorta Yorta Climate Change Adaptation Workshop 14th – 15 Nov 2012, Yorta Yorta Country, Echuca. Hosted by Yorta Yorta Nation in conjunction with Monash Sustainability Institute, Monash University. Attended by an international delegation of indigenous leaders.

This workshop examined how Indigenous knowledge can contribute to improved climate change adaptation for Indigenous communities and the Australian community in general, through ongoing protection of Cultural Heritage, promotion of healthy ecosystems and community empowerment.

The workshop brought together Indigenous leaders from around the country with researchers and international experts to share knowledge and experience and to discuss where we are now, and what still needs to be done to maximise the potential use of Indigenous knowledge for climate change adaptation. The report from the workshop can be found here.
