Custodians Of Culture and Biodiversity: Indigenous Peoples take charge of their challenges and opportunities
PDF File Size: 617 KB | Download   
The study reviewed 1095 proposals for solutions to rural poverty, proposed by the indigenous peoples and their organisations. The data, consisting of just proposals, had inbuilt limitations. Yet,it provided a valuable insight into the complexity of indigenous poverty and required solutions. Most proposals had a holistic perspective with a strong focus on sustainability. Cultural identity and rights-based approaches were also often part of the proposals and included livelihoods, natural resource and land management, as well as environmental regeneration approaches. It also became apparent that new challenges faced by the indigenous peoples carry the mantles of the past. The Green revolution that came with pesticides is being replaced with a second generation green revolution that comes with new GMO seeds. Colonial exploitation of the natural resources of indigenous peoples continues with the multinational corporations whose entry has been facilitated by the neo-liberal economic mode and rules on competition. The exploitation of resources comes with pollution and reduced biodiversity. While still tackling the environmental state exclusion of the past that sidelined indigenous peoples from the use of forest reserves and natural parks, new challenges come from myopic efforts to respond to global warming with biofuel plantations. They too alienate indigenous peoples from their lands. Many of the activities, proposed by the indigenous peoples, include integrated approaches. Their synergy is not always clear. Yet, in others the holistic model forms a well-integrated package, tying various sectors with identity and rights. In the context of global warming and erosion of biodiversity, pollution of rivers and overexploitation of land, this model is highly appropriate.
