Indonesia, Kenya and Nicaragua Case Studies Print

As part of the Climate Change Project’s 1st year implementation, 3 Case Studies on indigenous peoples' sustainable forest management practices were undertaken in Kenya, Nicaragua and Indonesia. The Case Studies were written by indigenous researchers from indigenous partner organizations - Institut Dayakologi for Indonesia, CADPI for Nicaragua and MPIDO for Kenya.

The general objectives of the Case Study are the following:

  1. To conduct an in-depth study of distinct and existing traditional knowledge and practices on forest and forest management of Indigenous Peoples.
  2. To study, illustrate and reinforce indigenous peoples processes, mechanisms and strategies on protection and revitalization of their forests and ultimately help in mitigating climate change.


The Case Studies were published by Tebtebba in the book Sustaining & Enhancing Forests Through Traditional Resource Management in 2010 and launched during COP 16 of the UNFCCC in Cancun, Mexico in December that year.
