As the UNFCCC climate talks open in Panama, a gathering in Finland of indigenous leaders from around the world has called upon the international community to address remove bias against traditional knowledge from climate change science and policy. The “Sevettijärvi Declaration”, adopted at the meeting, calls on the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to make all efforts necessary to include indigenous knowledge and local perspectives in its assessment processes.
