From the United Nations Environment Programme — this resource-rich kit of terrific tools that supports the knowledge and conservation efforts of local, rural, and indigenous communities.
The Indigenous Peoples’ and Community Conserved Territories and Areas — ICCAs — often exist in locations where residing communities have a traditional and historical association with the land or sea. These ICCAs are set aside for conservation to enhance biodiversity, protect sites of historical, cultural, or spiritual value, and to provide investment for future generations.
