Sustainable resettlement and environmental conservation: A collaborative approach to the right of return to the Chagos Archipelago

Jeffery, L. (Organiser)

Activity: Consultancy typesPublic Engagement – Work on advisory panels for social community and cultural engagement

Description

I organised a knowledge exchange workshop on the theme of “Chagos: Sustainable Archipelago”, which was attended by fifteen members of the extended Chagossian community in Mauritius, two academically trained ecologists, four environmental conservationists, two consultants in marine resources, and two trustees of a Chagossian solidarity group. The workshop brought together – for the first time – Chagossians with detailed ecological knowledge of the Chagos Archipelago and scientists, conservationists and consultants with expertise in environmental conservation, sustainable development, and integrated coastal zone management in the Republic of Mauritius and the wider Indian Ocean region. Participants developed ideas for a sustainable future for the Chagos Archipelago.
