Supporting Livestock Keeper’s Rights in Rajasthan


Natural Justice is in Rajasthan, India, working with Lokhit Pashu-Palak Sansthan, Kalpavriksh, and others to focus on the Raika’s continuing exclusion from the Kumbalgarh Sanctuary. Read other blog postings for more information about an August 2010 international meeting on livestock keepers’ rights; the Raika’s July 2010 appeal to the Forest Department; a March 2010 workshop on biocultural community protocols for livestock keepers; and a case study in the IUCN Rights-Based Approach to Conservation Portal. A 2010 book on livestock keepers’ rights and biocultural community protocols by Ilse Koehler-Rollefson provides an excellent overview and analysis of the issues.

Subsequently, Natural Justice will visit the Centre for Indian Knowledge Systems in Chennai to discuss their plans to develop a legal empowerment programme, and then meet with colleagues at the Institute of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine (I-AIM, formerly the Foundation for the Revitalization of Local Health Traditions) to discuss biocultural community protocols.
