The Endogenous Development of Well-Being


From June 2-4, Natural Justice, the Foundation for Revitalization of Local Health Traditions (FRLHT), the COMPAS Network for Endogenous Development, and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Equator Initiative hosted a training on bio-cultural community protocols in Bangalore, India. Kabir Bavikatte and Gino Cocchiario (Natural Justice) facilitated the workshop, which was attended by 32 representatives of community-based organizations (CBOs). The workshop also served as a stakeholder consultation to gain valuable input on community protocols from networks such as COMPAS, Community Knowledge Service, and African Biodiversity Network. Focusing on the interlinkages between community protocols, endogenous development, and well-being, the interactive workshop involved the development of two hypothetical community protocols and the support of participants to use protocols as a tool for communities to affirm their rights to their resources and knowledge.
