Indigenous women will discuss how climate change may increase and fuel violence against them, and the strategies they are pursuing to restore safety in their communities. When unsustainable development takes and damages indigenous land and resources, whether through extraction, deforestation, environmental degradation, tourism, or otherwise, it not only contributes to global climate instability but also can adversely impact Indigenous women and their communities by, for example, forcing their relocation; impairing their subsistence hunting, fishing, and gathering; and increasing their vulnerability to violence. Climate policies must address Indigenous women’s needs and the enjoyment of their human rights.
