Video Proposal titled: “Indigenous Community Management of Shared Landscape Resources in San Miguel”
“Indigenous Community Management of Shared Landscape Resources” advances the understanding of the inter- connectedness of watersheds supporting a holistic approach to indigenous communities' livelihoods and people Communities have viewed freshwaters as an indefinite resource and have done little to improve freshwater health. Research indicates that only 3% of freshwater is readily accessible by humans. As population grows the consumption of potable water will increase, demanding we safeguard the source of our freshwaters.

Project goal: To create awareness and build capacity and understanding of the importance of freshwater
ecosystems and impacts to the marine life, formalize the establishment of a ‘community conserved area’ by 2018.

Project objectives: To design and deliver sessions to key stakeholders and CBO partners, to promote the understanding of watersheds, riparian buffers, freshwater wildlife habitats, and to enhance conservation measures including establishment of an important conserved area that support indigenous communities’ livelihoods.
