Community-based management strategies for biocultural diversity conservation

Community Exchanges

One of the important elements of the COMBIOSERVE project is the development of active communication between the communities involved in the project. Currently, field site leaders are discussing the possibility of organising letter exchanges between communities in Campeche (Mexico), Bahia (Brazil) and Bolivia. In the third year of the project (2014), more structured exchanges between the communities are planned. These will principally take the shape of video exchanges between communities in Brazil, Bolivia and Mexico. In most cases, the videos will be produced by community members who are specialists in participatory video, and will use subtitles for communications over the Portuguese-Spanish language barrier, and when protagonists use their own indigenous language.


This page will be updated as and when these exchanges begin.
