E-Learning Modules

A number of e-learning modules are being developed specifically to support the legal aspects of biocultural community protocols. The modules can be used as the basis for community discussions, workshops, and action planning about key legal frameworks that affect Indigenous peoples and local communities and their territories and areas. They can also be used in conjunction with in-person legal advice and support from pro bono lawyers and human rights advocates in your country or region.

In the coming months, several additional modules will be developed on other key international frameworks as well as national laws and policies in select countries in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. They will be posted here as they become available. As they are first versions, all of the modules are open to comment, further input, and feedback on local experiences.

Please download the modules on the following international frameworks:
