In October 2015, the CBC convened a workshop in Tahiti to document how people are using biocultural indicators across the Pacific, explore how indicators assist communication across audiences and encourage knowledge exchange across multiple groups. The workshop brought together a diverse set of perspectives including representatives from government, from cultural and environmental institutions, and from academia.

Participants presented case studies of biocultural indicator use, leading to a lively plenary discussion that highlighted the importance of biocultural indicators for the integrity and resilience of local communities. The workshop successfully brought to light specific instances of biocultural approaches and indicator use, identified new potential biocultural indicators for future use, and contributed to cross-cultural and pan-Pacific exchange of ideas and solutions to address critical issues facing communities today.
