Jonas, Harry; Kothari, Ashish; Shrumm, Holly2012
This synthesis report is based on two studies promoted by the ICCA Consortium between 2011 and 2012. The first is a legal analysis that analyzes the interaction between conservation areas of indigenous peoples and local communities (ICCA in the English acronym) and international and national laws, and their institutional frameworks. The second one studies the various legal, social, administrative or other forms that allow recognition and support for ICCAs. Both legal analysis and the study of recognition modes analyzed between 15 and 19 countries in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Pacific.
