Climate change driving Indigenous food insecurity in Canada: report

Canada’s failure to act on climate change is putting First Nations’ access to nutritious, traditional foods at risk, diminishing health and cultural ties, according to a report released Wednesday by Human Rights Watch.

The report documents the impact of climate change on food insecurity in several First Nations communities that subsist on caribou, moose, salmon and berries — foods that have been relied on for generations and are inseparable from their cultures.
