    Abstract This article explains how and why territorial movements have become central to climate action in the Global South. It also analyses how these movements interact on multiple scales with the global climate justice movement. Furthermore, the analysis zooms in on indigenous movements in the Amazon, with a particular analytical lens on their contributions to climate justice. This includes the recognition of indigenous peoples’ history and suffering of dispossession and exclusion of territories of extraction, and how climate policies can be unsuccessful if they continue to mirror the discriminatory practices that have led to the large-scale dispossession and exclusion of vulnerable peoples. The article concludes by calling for a more systematic integration of the voices of territorial indigenous rights groups in the global climate debate and how the experiences of these groups related to global climate justice should be the basis for global governance policy.
