Indigenous peoples worldwide lead sustainable livelihoods that contribute to the sequestration of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and cause the least amount of damage to the environment. Yet, indigenous peoples, particularly women, often are the hardest hit by the effects of climate change. Indigenous societies, for instance, struggle to save their resources from deforestation and damaging extraction of minerals, oil and gas, as well as against further expansion of mono-crop plantations. This, in part, has to do with colonial and corporate attempts to nationalize and privatize their resources.
