The Raika Biocultural Community Protocol

The whole purpose of Camel Charisma is to create additional income for the Raika and other camel breeders and thereby an economic incentive to conserve and steward the camels of Rajasthan and its eco-system. In order to ensure community ownership over the camel and the raw materials that it provides, the Raika have established a Biocultural Community Protocol. This document provides details about the genetic resources and some of the traditional knowledge of the Raika. For additional information see this presentation by Hanwant Singh Rathore about the Raika BCP that he gave during a side-event held at a meeting at the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations.
