Building Resilient Communities through Indigenous Consultation

"Indigenous peoples are incredible first responders and resilient problem solvers. Unfortunately, they often suffer the most devastating impacts of disaster not because of disaster risk reduction incompetence, but rather, systemic racism, isolation and marginalization. There is an urgent need to increase dialogue between Governments, policymakers and Indigenous peoples, to give credit to the value of Indigenous knowledge and the self-reliance and sustainability it represents. There is also an ever-expansive opportunity to embrace modernity in Indigenous knowledge, which is often unilaterally defined as “traditional”, and establish a balanced approach to bring the benefits of modern science and technology to localized problem-solving initiatives."
