Decolonizing Restoration: Laying Solid Foundations for #GenerationRestoration

24 Jun 2021

As the UN Decade commences, the world must work to ensure that the knowledge, perspectives, interests and needs of Indigenous peoples and local communities – time-immemorial guardians of some of the world’s most pristine and biodiversity-rich ecosystems – are mainstreamed in global restoration agendas, initiatives and debates.

During this Youth Daily Show session, Adjany Costa, a young marine biologist and ethnoconservationist from Angola, shares her insights on community-led conservation and the need for a restoration movement that integrates traditional and scientific knowledge.
