This toolkit presents a practical methodology for developing and facilitating indigenous LA under the
framework of the IPCCA, providing methodological options and practical examples to support their local
implementation. Since the LA are undertaken across ecosystems and biocultural regions of the world, each
very different, this guide is meant to provide a general methodological framework applicable to all the LA
without homogenizing their differences, thus ensuring that results may be synthesized and develop appropriate strategic responses at multiple levels.
The toolkit has been prepared for the use of local IPCCA partners, indigenous peoples and communities interested in indigenous assessments of climate change. The IPCCA process is based on the implementation of UNDRIP (which considers rights such as self- determination) and ensures that indigenous perspectives that come from local biocultural realities feed into global processes.
