The Bhutan Declaration on Climate Change and Mountain Indigenous Peoples
We, more than 100 indigenous peoples and traditional farmers from 25 communities in 10 countries speaking 22 languages, together with civil society organisations and research institutions, gathered in Bhutan in the communities of Jangbi and Ura from 26 May to 1 June, 2014, to analyse the impacts of recent climatic changes on Mother Earth and on the livelihoods and cultures of indigenous peoples in mountain regions, and to develop responses to this crisis.
