Governments and Indigenous People

At a time when conservationists around the world are realizing that the very foundations of conservation need a reboot to not just involve but revolve around indigenous knowledge, indigenous peoples of the world are facing persecution and injustice from their governments. In India, the most recent blow to the rights of forest-dwelling indigenous tribes is the Draft EIA 2020, which takes the rights to participate in decision-making and raise objections to developmental projects in their own lands away from them.
