Production of Minerals for Green Energy Could Put Indigenous Australians At Risk

A new study has found that 54% of mineral production associated with transitional or green energy production infringes on indigenous land.

The report details the impacts on Indigenous Australian peoples and lands, and also details how Indigenous and peasant peoples are effected internationally.

What measures should be in place to ensure that Indigenous people aren’t disproportionately effected by all aspects of the climate catastrophe, including transitional infrastructure.
