for Sustainable Development (ESD)
framework of the ESD, CSI platform developed locally based activities
focusing on capacity development through 'learning by doing'. Initiatives
include communities planning their own future development, groups sharing
eco-friendly practices, youth promoting local languages in reaffirming
their identity, and school children adopting a hands-on approach to
addressing environmental issues.
Local and Indigenous Knowledge Systems (LINKS) project capacities are
strengthened to record indigenous knowledge, elaborate pedagogical materials
for intercultural education and develop advocacy tools to strengthen
local voices in biodiversity governance, in rural and indigenous communities.
