From Climate Litigation
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Indigenous peoples are among the first to face the direct consequences of climate change, due to their dependence upon, and close relationship, with the environment and its resources. Climate change exacerbates the difficulties already faced by indigenous communities including political and economic marginalization, loss of land and resources, human rights violations, discrimination and unemployment.[1] There are already many cases brought before the courts by the indigenous peoples.
