Mobile Peoples and Conservation
- +44 (0)1865 281715
Research and advocacy focused on mobile peoples adversely affected by aspects of global environmental governance
Mobile indigenous peoples are often excluded from accessing land they have lived off for centuries, or have their access so severely restricted that dislocation, and in some cases forced settlement, results.
In October 2008 the Standing Committee for the Dana Declaration on Mobile Peoples and Conservation organised a representation of twelve mobile peoples at the 5th Congress of the International Union for Conservation of Nature in Barcelona. Here the Dana Declaration was officially endorsed, representing a significant step in addressing the special vulnerabilities and needs of mobile peoples.
