Introducing the COBRA website

COBRA goes Public

December 28, 2011

The COBRA project goes live today with the launch of its website for the general public. One of the objectives of this website is to provide a platform for learning about the project and viewing videos and photomaterial produced by indigenous communities in two of the most remote areas of the world located in the Guiana Shield, South America.

This is part of the action research undertaken by 8 consortium partners. The focus of the research is on identifying indigenous’ best practices – or community-owned solutions – on resource management and integrating these solutions into policy frameworks.

The long term ambition with this website is to provide general tools and approaches to identify community-owned solutions through the use of participatory video and to contribute to their wide-spread integration in national and international policies affecting local communities.

You are kindly invited to subscribe to COBRA’s newsletter and to become a regular visitor of this site. Here you will learn more about the project, the communities we work with and the link between community viability and policy formation.
