Legal reviews

Between 2011-2012, the ICCA Consortium undertook international-to-local analyses of International Law, National Legislation, Judgements, and Institutions as they interrelate with Territories and Areas Conserved by Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities. The reports analyze the effects of laws, policies and implementing agencies on ICCAs, and explore the diversity of ways in which Indigenous peoples and local communities are using the law to sustain the resilience of their ICCAs. The synthesis report was launched in 2012 at the World Conservation Congress (Jeju, Korea) and the 11th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (Hyderabad, India).
