These databases provide an opportunity for indigenous peoples and local communities to share information about their ICCAs, which will contribute to a better understanding of the global extent of protected and conserved areas, and to an increased appreciation of ICCAs’ contributions to conservation, as well as the challenges they face in defending their territories and ways of life against diverse threats. It is therefore important that the ICCA Registry and WDPA increase the amount of information they have about indigenous peoples’ and community-led conservation. The purpose of this document is to enable this to happen by assisting ICCA custodians, and those who work with them, in providing information.
