Why are we doing walking tours in African cities? To help us see and engage with small scale urbanism and urban tinkering. – The Nature of Cities

Urban tinkering suggests that we should look at current city #infrastructure, #policy, and #design, and explore how these existing structures can be used in diversified ways, which help adapt to social, economic, and ecological change.

Recently, we took part in a walking workshop hosted by #CollaborativeProgramme partner ICLEI's Urban Natural Assets for Africa programme. The walking workshop in Kisumu, #Kenya allowed participants to understand the city first-hand explore ways how urban tinkering could be implemented.

Indigenous peoples are crucial for conservation

#ThrowbackTuesday to this paper illustrating how #Indigenous peoples are crucial for #biodiversity conservation. It states indigenous peoples manage or have #tenure rights over at least 38 million km2 of land globally in other worlds 40% of lands listed by national governments:

Understanding the scale, location and nature conservation values of the lands over which Indigenous Peoples exercise traditional rights is central to implementation of several global conservation and climate agreements. However, spatial information on Indigenous lands has never been aggregated globa

Peru’s approach to conservation and natural resources is discriminatory and violates the human rights of indigenous peoples – specifically, their rights to their territories, lands and natural resources.
Rather than marginalising indigenous peoples, who have a long and varied history of conservation, conservation actors must recognise their enormous contribution to Peru’s natural heritage.
They should ally themselves with these communities against the true enemies of conservation: the unrestricted expansion of the oil, mining, logging and agricultural industries, and the corruption which permits this.
