Case study 4 – Harmonizing indigenous and local knowledge: “The path towards community and institutional resilience”

“We, the indigenous peoples, do not reject adapting to climate change because we have always, as a people–consulted Nature. We read its signs and foresee; we understand; we harmonize with it which is how we have always lived and survived through the ages, because we are blessed by our actions.” Pablo Ramón Vanegas, member of the indigenous community and technical liaison for the municipal government in San Lucas for PfR.
