Territories of Life: 2021 Report is a local-to-global analysis of territories and areas conserved by Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (sometimes abbreviated as “ICCAs” or “territories of life”). This multi-scale approach weaves together diverse perspectives, insights and new findings about the grassroots global phenomenon of territories of life while also creating space for nuance and complexity. Overall, the report adds to a growing body of literature on the incontrovertible role of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities in ensuring a healthy planet for all, and the urgent actions required to support them.
