PPgis.net serves as a global avenue for discussing issues, sharing experiences and good practices related to community mapping, participatory mapping, counter mapping, Public Participation GIS (PPGIS), Participatory GIS (PGIS), and other geo-spatial information technologies and systems used to support integrated conservation and development, sustainable natural resource management and customary property rights in developing countries and First Nations. Members of the network are able to share information and lessons learned and post questions, resource documents and announcements which are relevant to the practice.
Participatory Avenues acts as focal point for sharing information and technical progress on community-based mapping and Participatory GIS (PGIS). The website provides ample documentation on Participatory 3D Modelling (P3DM), an efficient tool for merging indigenous technical knowledge and traditional spatial information. P3DM applications include community-based natural resources management, collaborative research and planning, safeguarding intangible cultural heritage, resource use, control and tenure, and related conflict management.

This site is dedicated to the open investigation of mycoherbicides. This site will attempt to consider many aspects of the proposed and actual use of mycoherbicides against drug crops: i.e. marijuana, coca, and opium, including issues of mutability and toxicity that are rarely discussed by their proponents.
Indigenous leaders and scientists caution that aerial fumigation of drug crops with chemical herbicides could seriously threaten the health of Amazonian communities and ecosystems that are among the most diverse in the world. Studies show that fumigation abroad will not decrease drug use in the US.
