A close association is often found between a specific indigenous people or local community and a specific territory, area, or body of natural resources. When such an association is combined with effective local governance and conservation of nature, we speak of an “ICCA”. ICCA sounds like an acronym, but it is not. It is an abbreviation for “territories and areas conserved by indigenous peoples and local communities” or “territories of life”. In Indonesia, Working Group ICCAs Indonesia (WGII) use the term of Areal Konservasi Kelola Masyarakat (AKKM) to interpret the ICCAs.
