Digital Storytelling

We use multimedia tools and platforms to capture and share the narratives, oral histories, and lived experiences of indigenous and local communities impacted by climate change.


GIS & Community Mapping

Digital mapping tools are utilized to merge scientific data with local and indigenous knowledge about the land, water, and ecosystems. Platforms like ArcGIS, Google Earth, or open-source alternatives can be used to highlight areas of cultural significance, ancestral lands, and regions impacted by climate change, emphasizing the interconnectedness of these elements.

By giving communities the tools and training to create their own maps, researchers can challenge colonial interpretations of the landscape and affirm indigenous perspectives.


Incorporating digital tools in Decolonial Community-Based Participatory Action Research (CBPAR)  on climate change adaptation requires careful consideration to ensure that the tools are accessible, culturally sensitive, and do not inadvertently perpetuate colonial hierarchies or biases. Engaging community members in the selection, design, and implementation of these digital solutions is crucial.
