Amazon Peoples and Climate Change

by April 10, 2016

Indigenous Peoples and their relationship to the land is distinctly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. This relationship is also key to confronting the agents of change.

In this 22-minute documentary, you will hear Indigenous Peoples from across the Peruvian Amazon describe how climate change is effecting them and the biodiversity their cultures and communities depend on.

The film, produced by EBA Amazon, also highlights the stewardship role that Indigenous Peoples play– especially in protected areas such as the Amarakaeri and Tuntanain Communal Reserves–so that we have the capacity to address and endure the effects of climate change.

Meet the experiences and voices of these Amazon Peoples, whose work not only benefits them, but all people around the world.
