Creation 5 th parks congress in durban south africa in september 2003

WAMIP is a worldwide alliance of peoples, tribes and communities whose link with the territory and the natural resources is characterised by mobility, understood as a critical strategy for the sustainable use and conservation of natural resources, and as a crucial element of their cultural identity and heritage.

CREATION :

5th Parks Congress in Durban, South Africa, in September 2003.

These peoples asserted the capacity of mobile indigenous peoples (MIPs) to conserve biodiversity based on their customary and cultural practices of sustainable resource management.

They met and exchanged views with representatives of the indigenous peoples worldwide, sharing a deep concern for the respect of cultural rights, rights to land and natural resources, and right to self-determination.

The representatives of the mobile peoples have accordingly decided to form their own association, identified themselves as indigenous and expressed their solidarity with the larger and well-established indigenous and tribal peoples’ movement worldwide.
