The Ecuadorian indigenous movement has developed the concept of Good Life (Sumak Kawsay or Buen Vivir) as a conceptual weapon in order to defend the territories of indigenous nationalities as the movement itself defines them.
This article is an interview with Rafael Correa, ex-president of Ecuador, where he comments on the goals of Buen Vivir across the country.
Bob Thomson argues that understanding the limits to growth for our finite planet is slowly gaining currency due to the (mostly) European sustainable degrowth ‘movement’ and a plurinational Latin American cosmovision which is largely indigenous but also criollo.
This paper sets out to review the content of Buen vivir (‘good living’) as an emergent discourse, reflecting on its genesis and contributions to the sustainability debate, as well as on incipient attempts at its institutionalization.
Tremendous progress has been made by Indigenous peoples over the last 20 years, but Indigenous peoples must now focus on spurring the private sector to make similar rights recognitions. By advocating the adoption of Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC), Indigenous peoples are changing business practices on a huge scale.
This manual is a working guide for Indigenous peoples to understand FPIC in relation to projects related to REDD+. The objective of the manual is to explain to Indigenous peoples about FPIC and provide a guide on the application of FPIC in REDD+ activities. The manual should be adopted to the various needs of different communities.
