South Asia Bioregionalism Working Group
The South Asia Bioregionalism Working Group, is a voluntary network of members reimagining an ecoregional and bioregional governance for South Asia. It was initiated at a Democracy Vikalp Sangam (Alternatives Confluence) in October 2019. Our ecologies in the region are contiguous and so is the culture, which the group aims to highlight through documentation, dialogues, and action.
In the global context, the terms ecoregions and bioregions have different meanings, connotations and perspectives. This working group largely agrees with hte bioregional approach, as it seems more inclusive of both ecological and socio-cultureal dimensions; the group intends however to create its own definition of bioregionalism that is inclusive of South Asian perspectives.
