There is a direct link between the socio-economic status of people and exposure to the effects to climate breakdown. But their ancestral knowledge about nature is essential for adapting to climate change. We need all diverse voices and contributions to be heard if we want to avoid climate catastrophe and build a better world.” said HRH Princess Esmeralda of Belgium, Chair of Friendship Belgium during the World Forum on Climate Justice on the note that the indigenous and marginalised climate vulnerable communities are most exposed to climate crisis and yet, they are ones least contributes to exploitation of nature. Instead, their ancestral knowledge can help us build a climate resilient world.
