Case Study: Natural Justice
Providing Legal Frameworks for Communities through Bio-Cultural Community Protocols
Bio-cultural protocols (BCPs) are tools that facilitate culturally-rooted participatory decision-making processes within communities with the aim of asserting their rights to their communally managed lands and knowledge. The concept of BCPs was advanced by Natural Justice an international not-for-profit social enterprise with offices in South Africa, Malaysia, India and the United States. Natural Justice received the SEED Award in 2009 in order to further develop and disseminate the BCP approach.
