Climate change

<<< bioculture overview

Climate change refers to the long-term change in the global climate resulting from human activities such as burning fossil fuels, deforestation and industrial processes. These activities lead to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere, which in turn leads to an increase in global average temperature, changes in precipitation patterns, melting of glaciers and ice sheets, and more frequent and intense extreme weather events.

Climate change has far-reaching impacts on the biocultural diversity of ecosystems and societies worldwide. It threatens the livelihoods of millions of people and endangers the biological diversity of plants and animals in various habitats. This can lead to habitat loss, species extinctions, changes in species distributions and shifts in ecosystems.

In addition, climate change also has cultural impacts as it threatens traditional ways of life and cultural practices that are closely linked to natural resources and habitats. Indigenous peoples and local communities that rely heavily on nature are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and may lose their traditional ways of life and cultural identities.

Dealing with climate change therefore requires a comprehensive and coordinated response at global, national and local levels. This includes reducing greenhouse gas emissions through the transition to renewable energy, energy efficiency and more sustainable production and consumption patterns. It also includes adapting to the already unavoidable impacts of climate change by strengthening the resilience of ecosystems and communities and integrating traditional knowledge and local solutions.

Overall, climate change highlights the urgent need for an integrative and holistic approach to protecting and preserving ecosystems and cultural communities. Addressing it requires a joint effort from all parts of society to create a sustainable and resilient future for all.
