The Centre for Indigenous Conservation and Development Alternatives

CICADA (Centre for Indigenous Conservation and Development Alternatives) targets the conceptual and practical potential of Indigenous peoples’ collective life projects to generate innovative regimes of environmental protection and alternative visions of development.

The research program is structured by seven conceptual and two methodological research themes: 1) life projects and ontologies; 2) customary tenures and territorial rights; 3) livelihoods and food sovereignty; 4) politics of resource extraction; 5) conservation and protected areas; 6) cultural heritage in conservation; 7) indigenous rights, law, and interlegalities; 8) community mapping; and 9) visual methodologies.
