Indigenous peoples and local communities (IPLCs) are climate frontliners with a strong sense of belonging and connection to their immediate environments. They have unique insights on local climate risks and impacts. The establishment of the Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples Platform (LCIPP) within the Paris Agreement (Decision 1/CP. 21) is an opportunity for mutual learning between IPLCs, technical persons, and policymakers. This workshop aimed to foster an exchange among these different stakeholders, including development researchers. It aimed to open discussions about challenges on the ground alongside existing local solutions. The workshop took place directly after the 8th Meeting of the Warsaw International Mechanism (WIM) on Loss and Damage (L&D) Executive Committee (Excom) from September 18-20, 2018 and contributes to future discussions on this as well as the LCIPP, climate finance for indigenous and local communities, and the Agenda 2030. The workshop culminated with a decision modeling exercise on crop insurance as a form of climate risk transfer in agroforestry systems during the second day.
