More than 400 representatives of the world’s indigenous peoples are meeting in Anchorage, Alaska, to share their experiences of climate change and their knowledge of ways to mitigate and adapt to global warming’s myriad impacts. They’ll also be agreeing on a set of policy measures and actions the world’s governments ought to take when the next UN Framework Convention on Climate Change gathering takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark, in December.
