Biocultural Community Protocols: Articulating and Asserting Stewardship

by on January 26, 2013
 

Protocols developed by Indigenous peoples or mobile or local communities (“community protocols”) are gaining recognition as a useful means by which a range of peoples and communities can engage with others according to their values, and on the basis of customary, national and international rights and responsibilities.

In this video, Indigenous Peoples concerned, experts and practitioners on the ground discuss community protocols, answering the questions: Why are they so important to ensure justice for Indigenous and Local Communities? And what makes them so successful?

Video Produced by Natural Justice in collaboration with Moving Images (India) and with support from Shuttleworth Foundation.
