Indigenous communities' cultural heritage and knowledge about natural resources, including water, urgently needs to be considered and protected. This feature invites Indigenous people, especially but not limited to those who play a key role with regards to water in their communtiy to share their knowledge about this valuable resource, their concerns about its state, and the changes in aquatic or water-related environments they observe, among other topics. Every featured individual has a profile page and is featured in an interview. Indigenous people can apply to be part of the initiative by filling this form.
Find links to the water-related-challenges shared by a member of an Indigenous communtiy on their profile pages.
Be the change!
If you would like to share your knowledge in the use of space-based technolgoy and data to address these challenges, please reach out to office[at]space4water.org.
Space-based solutions will be published here.
