As stated on the conference website, "CICADA focuses on the conceptual and practical potential of Indigenous peoples’ collective life projects to generate innovative regimes of environmental protection and the alternative visions of development required to foster ecological integrity. We bring together the projects of more than sixty academic co-investigators and collaborators from numerous universities and research institutions internationally, working in partnership with more than thirty Indigenous partner communities and organizations in the Americas, East Africa, Asia and Oceania. Our research program is structured by seven thematic and methodological axes: 1) life projects and ontologies; 2) customary tenures and territorial rights; 3) livelihoods and food security; 4) politics of resource extraction; 5) conservation and protected areas; 6) community mapping; and 7) visual methodologies."
