Next to that I would use the protection of indigenous medicinal IP through the process offered by the Herbal Anthropology project. It keeps big pharma from patenting an ancient tribal medicine.
The community controls the economic system that exists within an indigenous time frame, because Ejido Verde has usafruchteran rights; which means rights to the harvest, essentially and they can step in if a family is not doing their job to maintain their acreage. Then the community owning the medicinal IP of their products adds another level of protection of value from interacting with rapacious capital.

The long term value of the property increases, and the groundwater increases as you increase the biodiversity. There is an indigenous university, one of those created after the Zapatistas, working with Ejido Verde on intercropping and biodiversity enhancing innovations to their pine resin plantations. The Ejido Verde piece of IP helps moderate the impulses of the investor concerned most about the time value of their money.
It can protect against rapacious western capital, help immunize the community from deals where the time value of money rules over community goals. This approach would, I believe create community wealth, while improving the biodiversity and local and global climate response by not imposing western segmented and private ownership concepts and valuations on indigenous land while making it stay as a community asset. But it has become an asset that is now able to be invested by people who want a patient financial return. I would also do discovery around the other funders in the ecosystem.

It has generated much interesting research and has influenced the politics of conservation. However, it is not without its critics. In this volume of RCC Perspectives , scholars from a wide range of fields reflect on the definition, impact, and possible vulnerabilities of the concept.

Understandings of biocultural diversity have had and will have a significant impact on resource use and conservation, and on the transformation of landscapes. While the concept may help preserve what we value, we must ensure that it does not lead to forms of cultural or ecological imperialism.
WORKING GROUP ‘BIOCULTURAL LANDSCAPE‘
Despite the fact that the concept of biocultural diversity was hardly recognized by city authorities, interviewees gave many examples of how biodiversity and cultural diversity are taken into account in in formal city policies. The research revealed two main manifestations of biocultural diversity within urban Europe: biocultural diversity grounded in ecological features, and cultural values as a basic foundation for biocultural diversity. Consequently, urban biocultural diversity was found to have two spatial levels: the city level and the site level.
The latter is the domain where citizens participate in decisionmaking and the management of green spaces; it is here that cultural dynamics are most acknowledged.
