Abstract

Negotiating Diversity is an international field guide to the Convention that is designed to assist indigenous peoples and local communities seeking to engage with the Convention on Biological Diversity. The Field Guide explores key areas of the Convention which concern the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities and identifies opportunities for engagement with the work of the Convention from the local to the international level. The guide discusses opportunities and challenges for the engagement of indigenous peoples in the period from 2000 to 2003 and is accompanied by a website of the same name. It is of interest in relation to the history of engagement with the Convention by indigenous peoples.

Keywords: indigenous peoples, convention on biological diversity, cultural and linguistic diversity, human rights, biodiversity, international negotiations, traditional knowledge
