Action for Nature-based Solutions






In recent years, the use of Indigenous and local knowledge for informing decision-making has received increased attention. Likewise, new approaches have been proposed to address global environmental challenges – such as Nature-based Solutions, Other Effective Area-based Conservation Measures, and holistic Convivial Conservation activities.


If new approaches are not to repeat the mistakes of past interventionist-based conservation, they will need to involve community members and their knowledge. The findings from a new study suggest a way forward for those conservation scholars and practitioners who want to connect community members’ knowledge with conservation action.
