What is it about?

RISE (Climate change Resilience of Indigenous SocioEcological systems) is a joint international project that aims at understanding the socioeconomic and nutritional contributions of indigenous traditional food systems and the risks from future climate and environmental changes to promote sustainable development and adaptation. Here we introduce the project objectives and methodological protocol.

Why is it important?

Traditional food systems (TFS) represent one of the most prominent components of indigenous socio-ecological systems, providing not only nutritious and diverse food but also crucial socioeconomic, cultural and spiritual assets. However, proper understanding of how future climate change may compromise TFS through alterations of related human-nature interactions is still lacking. We intend to contribute to fill this knowledge gap through a case-study approach working with several indigenous communities in the Republic of Sakha and Thailand.
