Agroecology and permaculture innovation for climate change actions and biodiversity conservation

The lack of effective participation of Indigenous People in the value chain contributes to economic and social marginalization of this community. The negative attitude towards indigenous way of life and the loss of indigenous knowledge and way of living such as the early warning and predictions of rains for land preparations as mobility of herders, the death of elderly community members , forced evictions in Indigenous territories hinders utilization of indigenous knowledge as adaptation to the current food and climate crisis. Pastoralist women’s cultural roles mainly entail fetching water, energy sources and food. With severe droughts and floods, pastoralist women and girls spend longer time in search of food, water and firewood. This takes away time from pastoralist women and girls to actively and meaningfully engage in critical social activities, including participation in public discourses on social and climate justice.
