Abstract


  • Over the last decade, the global conservation agenda has increasingly recognized

    mobility as an important livelihood and management strategy for indigenous people,

    acknowledging the need to secure their ongoing access to natural resources within

    territorial waters and transboundary regions. A growing policy framework exists

    to support equity, indigenous rights, access to natural resources, participation in

    management of conservation areas and compensation resulting from loss of access

    to resources. The rights of indigenous peoples, including sea nomadic or migratory

    peoples,1 were recognized in 1989 under Article 4 of the International Labour

    Organization Convention. Various resolutions, recommendations, declarations and

    principles, formulated at conservation meetings, including the Convention on

    Biological Diversity and the World Parks Congress (WPC), have acknowledged the

    need to secure ongoing access for indigenous mobile and nomadic peoples to natural

    resources within local and transboundary protected areas in order to enable them to

    continue to hunt, gather and fish for both subsistence and income-generating purposes.2
