A group of six pastoralists’ leaders, from the KRAPAVIS project area, participated in the CBD-COP 11 (Eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity), held in October 2012 in Hyderabad. Along with other pastoralists in India, they represented the concerns of pastoralists, and highlighted the pastoralists’ rights and the tension between conservation areas and pastoralists, by participating in different side events on grazing lands, indigenous breeds raised by pastoralists, animal biodiversity and so on. The group also made presentations in the events on CCAs (community conserved areas) like Orans or sacred groves, biodiversity and FRA (Forest Right Act) implementation in tiger reserve and other conservation areas. This local’s participation would certainly contribute (as hoped!) toward global biodiversity conservation and climate change policies!
