Māori knowledge and its response to climate change

From Māpuna, 12:10 pm on 5 March 2022

For the first time indigenous knowledge has been included in a major report on climate change. The latest assessment by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was released this week and the report's authors found that the planet had heated by 1.1 degrees celsius, and would reach 1.5 degrees celsius just after 2030. The authors also placed an emphasis on indigenous communities. So how important is Matauranga Maori in being able to inform and further develop the climate change response? Associate Professor Sandy Morrison was one of four Maori researchers who contributed to the report.
