Natural Justice is contributing two case studies to an IUCN Rights Based Approaches portal. A recent IUCN publication called Conservation with Justice focuses on rights-based approaches to conservation and sets out a "stepwise approach." With reference to the stepwise approach, we will detail how the capacity building work with the K2C's Bushbuckridge Traditional Healers and the development of a bio-cultural community protocol increased the healers' organization, governance and participation in community decision-making, and will illustrate how the Raika community protocol is helping the community to challenge their exclusion from the Kumbalgargh Forest.
