Biocultural Community Protocols and Extractive Industries

Indigenous peoples and local communities around the world are using a number of advocacy techniques to respond to external threats and challenges caused by the global demand for increasingly scarce natural resources. Many of these threats are the result of industrial investment projects such as extractive industries or infrastructure projects to transport natural resource commodities and semiprocessed resources. More often than not, these projects take place in, or otherwise affect, the customary territories and natural resources of Indigenous peoples and local communities.
