Thailand has a population of more than 2 million indigenous people. It is estimated that 1.2 million live in the highlands in the north of the country. During the last four decades, most of these areas have been declared by the Thai government as protected areas, meaning that local communities don't have the right to manage their natural resources and to farm in their own areas.
FPP partner HuMa is a non-profit non-governmental organisation based in Indonesia, whose work focuses on the issue of law reform in the natural resources sector. HuMa was started 10 years ago and in this video, some of its founders talk about the organisation's history and their expectations and hopes for its future.
