Indigenous Peoples and local communities have proven experience at maintaining and improving the carbon density of forest landscapes, often under dire and violent circumstances. Like much of the front line workers that have been so crucial in the current global climate, Indigenous Peoples and local communities are first responders in their own right, on the front lines of the fight to protect the planet’s remaining tropical forests.

In Mongolia, the word “rangeland” is synonymous with “homeland.” It is a clue to the importance of rangelands in a country where a quarter of Mongolians are herders, and the wider livestock economy provides sustenance, income, and wealth to nearly half of the population. For many nomadic societies herding is at the core of their life. Around the world, rangelands support the livelihoods, social traditions, and resilience of 500 million people, primarily in low-income countries.

The climate crisis is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century – the geopolitical consequences are substantial. As things stand, we are on course for a much warmer world. The repercussions for our foreign policy agenda are significant and therefore a stronger role for foreign policy in international climate policy is called for – namely through climate diplomacy.
