Indigenous Peoples' Forest Tenure

Solutions Journalism Network

Solutions journalism is news about how communities and organizations are responding to social and environmental problems. This collection contains solutions stories about a range of indigenous peoples’ activities that reduce carbon emissions while safeguarding traditional ways of life. Read about about solutions from indigenous communities in Ecuador who are harnessing GPS and mapping technology to show their deep knowledge of the land and make an argument for why it should be protected, or the ranger programs in Australia and Canada that employ indigenous people to caretake protected lands, or the community forest project in the Central Africa.
