Exploring bio-cultural community protocols in Sri Lanka

By

A workshop hosted by Community Knowledge Service (CKS) Sri Lanka and the COMPAS Network begins today in Avissawella, Sri Lanka. The three-day workshop brings together CKS and COMPAS partners from Sri Lanka, India, the Philippines, and Nepal, and provides an opportunity for over 30 community and NGO representatives to explore the concept of bio-cultural community protocols in their local contexts. The workshop will provide an overview of how communities in India and African countries are using bio-cultural community protocols to affirm their customary uses of natural resources, and will facilitate discussion about their application to the participants’ local challenges and national legal and policy frameworks. Natural Justice thanks Sujeewa Jasinghe, CKS Sri Lanka Coordinator, for his excellent logistical assistance.
