Why is the indigenous population vulnerable to climate change? Why do we care?
This week, Lorraine invited Joseph Lewnard and Kate Patterson, who are researchers of the Indigenous Health Adaptation to Climate Change (IHACC) project, to talk about their field observations and work in Uganda. Funded by the IDRC and the Canadian tri-councils, the IHACC project has a interdisciplinary research team working closely with the local governments and indigenous populations in the Canadian Arctic, Peru, and Uganda. While Joe has his focus in the epidemiological pathways of vector borne diseases, and Kate has her focus in food and water security, the two researchers aspire to enhance the local population's ability to cope despite challenges in changing climate, technology, and economic contexts.
If you would like to hear our interview with Dr. James Ford, the principal investigator of the IHACC project from last year, you can find it here.
