TGER/TILCEPA have facilitated a series of grassroots-level ICCA discussions accross the world. These workshops are part of the project  “Valuing and Supporting Indigenous and Community Conserved Areas”, funded by the GTZ,  which seeks to refine the understanding of the values, benefits and appropriate forms of recognition of ICCAs.

On this page you will find the reports from the individual sites. The lessons learned from these grassroots discussions are synthesized in a Briefing Note on Recognizing and Supporting Indigenous and Community Conservation.

If you would like to contribute your comments on the issue of recognition and support for ICCAs, please read our Draft ICCA Guidelines and send us your input.
