ISC and its partners organised the 9th edition of the Science Summit around the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA78) on 12-29 September 2023.
The role and contribution of science to attaining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be the central theme of the Summit. The objective is to develop and launch science collaborations to demonstrate global science mechanisms and activities to support the attainment of the UN SDGs, Agenda 2030 and Local2030. The meeting will also prepare input for the United Nations Summit of the Future, which will take place during UNGA79 beginning on 12 September 2024.

[VIRTUAL] Advancing a dialogue between Indigenous and Western legal frameworks related to Environmental Challenges (151101)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
The session aims to open a dialogue on the importance of evolving the Legal Frameworks related to Environmental Change, which enable or not the effective inclusion of historically excluded populations, such as the Indigenous Peoples in the decision and science-making processes.

Abstract
Legal Frameworks related to Environmental Change frameworks also have the potential to foster the development and implementation of Transdisciplinary approaches to deal with the most pressing societal/environmental issues.
Through this panel, we aim to co-develop a roadmap to continue advancing the dialogue between Indigenous and Western legal frameworks related to Environmental Challenges, based on the panellists' previous experiences working in the field in Canada and Latin America also from the decolonial and anti-colonial perspectives.
Some of the questions that will be explored in co-building the roadmap are:
-What is the current state regarding the integration of the Indigenous and Western legal frameworks related to Environmental Challenges?
-What are the main limitations/obstacles identified for an effective integration?
-What can be done from your institution's end to advance the dialogue between and effective integration of the Indigenous and Western legal frameworks related to Environmental Challenges?

Expected outcomes
A contribution to a roadmap to continue advancing the dialogue between Indigenous and Western legal frameworks related to Environmental Challenges, based on the panelists' previous experiences working in the field in Canada and Latin America also from the decolonial and anti-colonial perspectives.

INTERPRETATION SPANISH/ENGLISH WILL BE AVAILABLE!
