Indigenous Victorian leaders are helping the World Bank to understand climate change. The Indigenous Yorta Yorta people in Victoria have been sharing knowledge on climate change adaptation with international experts, including a World Bank representative, at a local workshop on the banks of the Murray River.

The collaboration is part of a longer-term project looking at combining Indigenous traditional knowledge with Western science and technology to address environmental problems. The meeting comes as the World Bank warns global temperatures could rise by four degrees with potentially devastating results.
