Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities: Experiences from the Andes and Amazonia and Global Analysis of Laws to Secure Their Territories and Areas

La Oficina Regional para América del Sur de la UICN, junto a la Sociedad Peruana de Derecho Ambiental y los socios locales Ecociencia e Instituto de Montaña, presentan seis estudios de caso sobre cómo el manejo ancestral de recursos como el agua, el suelo, la flora y la fauna por parte de pueblos indígenas y comunidades locales permite la conservación de ecosistemas y medios de vida en los Andes y la Amazonía de Colombia, Ecuador, Perú y Bolivia, así como la adaptación al cambio climático.

El evento incluye la exhibición de un video sobre las zonas de estudio y fotografías con testimonios de los pobladores, además de un espacio para responder a las dudas de los asistentes

12:00 - 13:00: "Space to Place New Steps of Change": An analysis of international, regional, and national laws essential to securing Indigenous peoples' and local communities' territories and areas (ICCAs)

On behalf of the ICCA Consortium, Natural Justice and Kalpavriksh are undertaking an international legal analysis and a range of national legal reviews of laws that support or hinder conservation efforts by Indigenous peoples and local communities in their territories and areas. The national reviews include the following countries: Canada, Suriname, Bolivia, Chile, Panama, Namibia, Kenya, Senegal, India, The Philippines, Iran, Malaysia (Sabah), Taiwan, Australia, and Fiji. This event will launch two complementary publications and explore the implicit relationship between laws and the integrity of biocultural diversity and the overall functioning of socio-ecological systems. It will illustrate how international and national legal systems have a direct impact on community governance and management of territories, lands and resources. With reference to a number of case studies, this event will also illustrate how Indigenous peoples and local communities are actively engaging with key legal frameworks to secure their territories and areas and contribute to conservation efforts.
