Overview

Indigenous Peoples and Sustainability, Cases and Actions is rich in case studies illustrating how Indigenous Peoples - through integration of their knowledge with practical strategies for conservation - have historically been and are still successful in attaining sustainability. Indigenous Peoples presently live in the most ecologically diverse regions and manage about one fifth of the earth's surface. They practice the fundamental principles of managing their land and resources for the spiritual health of the Earth and for the future generations of all its species.If this book has but one thing to communicate, it would be that financial, economic, and political support for projects conceived, led, and implemented by Indigenous Peoples must be the most important priority for effective change.
