The communities engaged in the Yakutia CBM are mainly Indigenous fishermen, hunters and reindeer herders who are heavily dependent on the living natural resources. They have been facing serious challenges in relation to accessing these resources due to changes in resource availability and threats, including pollution and resource depletion caused by various forms of mining developments, commercial fishing companies and changes in climate. The areas they live in are classified as traditional areas of occupational use, protecting rights of Indigenous communities, but in practice it has been a challenge to enforce this legal status. Input from the CBM groups (information, analysis and recommendations) has been used by the Republic Indigenous Peoples’ Organisation of Sakha Republic to seek influence on resource management issues both at Republic and District level. Organising and communicating information are being undertaken using short forms, which are filled out by the CBM groups and which include resource information, analysis of information and suggested natural resource management actions.
