The foundation of a biocultural community emerges through a process of
documentation of key aspects of the community’s ways of life as well as
development of visions, plans, priorities, and strategies.

This part of the Toolkit consists of three sections. Deciding to Develop a
Community Protocol
is intended to help assess whether or not it may be appropriate to undertake a protocol process within your local context. Exploring the Community’s Foundations provides guidance on a range of issues that your community may wish to consider including in the biocultural community protocol, incuding the community’s identity and natural, social-cultural, economic, political and institutional, and legal foundations. Consolidating and Developing a Strategy involves a process of prioritizing key issues to include in the protocol, focusing and clarifying the community’s message to external actors, and finally, consolidating everything into a protocol using locally appropriate formats.
