Declaration of ICCA

Declaration and demarcation of the agreed area as an ICCA. The declaration is an important ceremony of the community, which involves the participation of all community members, representatives from government agencies and local governments, and other outside organizations who can potentially support the ICCA, and who have important roles to play in respecting the desire and land use of the community as specified in the plan. The ICCAs established and the accompanying documentation or case study are then submitted to the UNEP WCMC Global Registry of ICCAs for registration in the international database. The declaration and the registration effectively confers formal recognition of the community's ICCAs.
