The following two documents are first drafts for discussion - they have been informed by past ICCA studies and by a series of grassroots discussions with local communities. These early drafts will go through several stages before they are ready for publication, and we invite you to send us any comments and inputs:


Indigenous Peoples and Community Conserved Areas (ICCAs): Guidelines towards appropriate recognition and support

Towards a "Security Index" for ICCAs
