Indigenous peoples’ and community conserved territories and areas (ICCAs) are estimated to cover at least as much area as, if not more so than, the world’s state-designated protected areas, and under certain conditions they are more effective than state protected areas at preventing deforestation and conserving biodiversity. This chapter traces the recognition of ICCAs in international biodiversity law under the auspices of the 1992 Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), including in relation to protected and conserved areas, financial mechanisms and resource mobilization, traditional knowledge and customary sustainable use, sustainable development, ecosystem conservation and restoration, climate change, agricultural biodiversity and taxonomy.
