A two-day conference in Echuca this week will look at how Aboriginal knowledge can contribute to climate change adaptation.
Speakers include representatives from Brown University, the University of Hawaii, the World Bank and the Samoan Finance Minister.
Yorta Yorta Nations Aboriginal Corporation research manager Lee Joachim said the conference was the result of about five months of planning.
He said about 30 speakers and 80 guests would attend the conference.
Guests will include representatives from the Kimberley Land Council, the Arabana nation (around Lake Eyre) and various government agencies.
Mr Joachim said some topics covered at the conference would include climate-related research carried out by indigenous people and community archives of indigenous knowledge.
‘‘I think we need to know, as indigenous people, how we can help each other,’’ he said.
Mr Joachim said other organisations were interested in the work YYNAC was doing, including recording elders’ knowledge and creating geographical and cultural maps of the area.
