ICCA Registry

ICCAs are a diverse group of initiatives known collectively as territories and areas conserved by indigenous peoples and local communities.

The ICCA Registry combines a secure, offline database with online case studies in order to:

  • Build a global information-base on ICCAs
  • Promote knowledge-sharing within and between community conservation practitioners and the wider world

Participation in the ICCA Registry is voluntary.


The ICCA Registry is a voluntary, peer-reviewed avenue for both indigenous peoples and communities and the international conservation community to recognise and protect the multiple values of ICCAs and highlight their contribution to conservation around the world.

The ICCA Registry is part of a broader global effort to highlight the vital contributions that indigenous peoples and local communities have made to conservation throughout history, and continue to make today and into the future.
