Reporting Back from Sri Lanka

Natural Justice partnered with CKS-Sri Lanka and the COMPAS Network to facilitate a three-day consultation workshop on bio-cultural community protocols. Over the three days, participants from Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, and the Philippines heard presentations about the background to the right to self-determination under international and national human rights and environmental law and policy and discussed case studies on community protocols. They focused on the challenges that communities face in engaging with government and other stakeholders such as researchers and developed mock protocols based on forest-dependent and rice-farming community scenarios. Holly Shrumm and Harry Jonas thank the participants and organizers, especially Sujeewa Jasinghe, and look forward to further collaboration.
