Recently GEF UNEP Nomadic Herders project: Enhancing the resilience of reindeer herders’

ecosystems and livelihoods met with Evenki reindeer herders in one of the Taiga model area in

the project to prepare these indigenous peoples for implementation (pictures below).  Nomadic

Herders is also endorsed by Arctic Council in CAFF and will  soon provide a international

bachelor course in méthodes used to document traditional  knowledge related to biodiversity

issues. The course is financially supported by Ministry of Climate and Environment in

Norway. The taiga region globally is challenged by climate and biodiversity change which affect

indigenous peoples society.
