This toolkit is for Indigenous peoples, local and mobile communities,and supporting community-based and non-governmental organizations (CBOs and NGOs). It is intended to support communities to secure their rights and responsibilities and strengthen customary ways of life and stewardship of their territories and areas. It is directed primarily towards facilitators from the communities themselves or from supporting organizations with whom they have long-standing and positive relationships. Produced by Natural Justice, their vision is the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity through the self-determination of Indigenous peoples and local communities (Eds. Holly Shrumm & Harry Jonas. www.naturaljustice.org, 2012).
LifeMosaic and The Samdhana Institute are serialising a new book: Grassroots Leadership and Popular Education in Indonesia. Chapter 1: Context and Challenges provides an overview of the unprecedented challenges faced by communities, social movements and ecosystems in Indonesia and around the world. These include: a global rush for increasingly scarce resources; the risks of breaching multiple planetary boundaries which have enabled human life on Earth; increasing inequality; and an enormous loss of biological and cultural diversity; an Indonesian context where progress for community rights is being held back by large-scale land acquisition and growing agrarian conflict; top-down models for social or environmental transformation, critiqued by interviewees and workshop participants in the course of this research; the influence of the doctrine that states that There is No Alternative to neo-liberal economics and globalisation. Yet this chapter ends on a positive note, showing how, despite such challenges, there are alternatives that are being created around the world. (The Samdhana Institute / LifeMosaic, 2015)
