Abstract

Traditional ways of life are being affected by changing climate patterns. People who live in rural and regional Australia, including first peoples and farmers, are experiencing cultural change that has mental health impacts. Cultural change have been driven by disconnection from land that are forcing people to give up their traditional ways of living as a result of financial difficulties resulting from prolonged drought, forcing migration and impacting mental health. This discussion paper uses human rights frameworks to explore the nature of the climate driven cultural change on rural and regional people in Australia and the impact of that change on wellbeing.
