Melangkap Community Protocol


Alice Matthew (Borneo Conservancy) and Harry Jonas (Natural Justice) spent the week of the 10-14 February, 2014, working with community researchers and community leaders in the Melangkap cluster of villages to assist in the further development of their community protocol. The communities have been working for over a year, as part of the Kinabalu Biocultural Law Project which is sponsored by the Sabah Biodiversity Centre and UNDP Small Grants Programme, to assess their local resilience and set out for others their endogenous plans. The draft protocol will soon be workshopped across all five of the Melangkap villages before being finalized and signed by all community members, including the community leaders.
