Our second video from the ‘Project COBRA Impact’ series gives a flavour of how Indigenous community members participated in the project.


In 2011, a partnership between Indigenous associations, academic institutions and civil society organisations launched Project COBRA. Its mission was to support Indigenous communities in the Guiana Shield of South America to identify, record and share their own solutions, and showcase these to the rest of the world.

In December 2016, Project COBRA’s researchers launched the Cobra Collective (www.cobracollective.org), a social enterprise for advancing the project’s achievements.

Two years after the end of Project COBRA, The Open University funded a team from the Cobra Collective to interview key individuals that participated in, and/or benefited from, its legacy.
