Global climate change policies present new situations for women and indigenous peoples and their territories that involve both environmental and political effects. They are connected with transnationalization scenarios and the globalization of the environment, through its incorporation into green markets and environmental services resulting in the commodification of climate. Climate change is articulated with specific geopolitics of knowledge and representations of nature. From these new scenarios surrounding climate change emerge what I call “carbonized nature” and a “zero carbon citizen” that generate specific relations of the production of knowledge with global policies. Moreover, the linkages between gender and nature also demonstrate complex associations between science, gender, and politics that are extended to indigenous peoples. However, there are alternatives and counter-representations of climate change from a local indigenous perspective.
