Their stewardship of the ecosystems on which they depend is also recognized as one of the most important contributions to nature conservation, with the lands and waters of indigenous peoples and local communities supporting approximately 80% of the world’s biodiversity.

Indigenous Peoples around the world have always been innovative in finding ways to use their environment to their advantage, while respecting mother earth at the same time.

The increasing cases of new variants of Coronavirus in India has resulted in much suffering and despair. Though the virus does not discriminate, India’s 104.30 million indigenous peoples largely concentrated in the seven states of North-east India, and the central tribal belt stretching from Rajesthan to West Bengal, have been more adversely impacted, due to the lack of awareness and precautionary measures and due to ongoing obstacles in accessing government services.
