TCP Presenter Rodne R. Galicha talks about Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples during the Luzon Indigenous Youths Consultation on Climate Change organised by the Asia Pacific Indigenous Youths Network in Baguio City, Philippines, during the World Indigenous Peoples' Day on 9 August 2009.

Around 40 indigenous youth leaders attended the consultation. The participants said that the presentation really helped them amplify their roles as the hope of the Philippine indigenous community. They commit to share their traditional knowledge and integrate it with climate change adaptation and mitigation.

The indigenous peoples are the least contributors to climate change yet they are the most vulnerable to it, however, their age-old knowledge on climate and the environment may be used to combat climate change.
