The presentation will show impacts of climate change on traditional indigenous communities in the fragile ecosystem around the Amarakaeri Reserve in the Peruvian Amazon. Rainy seasons have altered, and rivers have been impacted, which has disrupted traditional livelihoods. Our communities are working to adapt by adjusting farming and fishing habits, looking for alternative livelihoods, all the while supporting one of Latin America's pilot REDD projects, where we will all be working together to save over 500 hectares of rainforest for the protection of our own livelihoods, and as a benefit to humanity. The presentation will show community impacts and broader initiatives in the Reserve.
Indigenous Harakbut leader and elected president of the Executor of the Amarakaeri Comunal Reserve (ECA) in Madre de Dios, Peru. The Reserve is a protected area of 400,000 hectares with ten buffer indigenous communities that live traditional forest livelihoods. The indigenous communities are trying to mitigate the impacts of climate change by protecting the carbon and bio-diversity rich tropical forests of the Reserve. My job it to support their efforts and look for creative ways to mitigate and adapt with limited resources and technical support.
