Community-based management strategies for biocultural diversity conservation

About us

We are an interdisciplinary and international research team with extensive experience in community-based natural resource management in Latin American and the Caribbean. Our team consists of indigenous representatives and advocates, community activists and researchers, biologists, anthropologists, ethnobiologists, economists, political scientists and environmental scientists.

 

Drawing on the ongoing practical experiences of community-based conservation among rural and indigenous communities in Bolivia, Brazil and Mexico, and the wealth and diversity of research experience of our academic partners, we will explore new pathways for action and conflict resolution among public, private and community actors involved in initiatives surrounding conservation, environmental change and ecosystem provision.
