In collaboration with BEDE (Biodiversité: Echange et Diffusion d’Expériences) and The Global Diversity Foundation, the ICCA Consortium organised a pre-congress workshop on Indigenous and Community conservation. It provided a platform for particiapnts to share experiences, take stock of advances and identify recommendations regarding three complementary aspects of the peoples’ and communities’ fight for their rights. This included:

  1. Participatory action research (how do indigenous peoples & local communities document their practices and build knowledge);
  2. Dissemination (how do indigenous peoples and local communities spread information and share knowledge);
  3. Advocacy (how do indigenous peoples and local communities seek to affect local, national, regional and international policy to secure their territories, natural resources, and cultural identity).
