Kicking Off the Asia Regional Initiative on BCPs


Harry Jonas and Holly Shrumm (Natural Justice) will be in Sri Lanka this week for a planning meeting for the Asia Regional Initiative on Biocultural Community Protocols. Natural Justice is working on this Initiative with colleagues from the COMPAS Network for Endogenous Development, the LIFE Network (League for Pastoral Peoples and Endogenous Livestock Development), and the UN University Institute of Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS). The Initiative partners will work with local communities in Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan to develop biocultural community protocols, implement field programmes to improve communities’ access to and management of natural resources, and enable communities to assert their rights under various national and international fora to lobby for policy change.
