We appreciate Ford's documentation of the many ways in which climate change threatens the traditional lifestyles and health of indigenous and other populations.(1) As Ford states, the impacts of climate change on indigenous peoples are primarily studied in Australia and the Arctic, leaving much unknown about their global scale and manifestations in other regions.(1) We believe that small island communities such as the Caribbean are also vulnerable to climate change because of their coastal-dependent geographies and lifestyles.
