This chapter considers the extent to which the impact of development activities upon subsistence lifestyles can be considered as an environmental valuation problem. It argues that the twin objectives of respecting the cultural identity of indigenous communities and conserving the natural environment require the ‘internalization’ of the costs of development as reflected in the impact of environmental degradation upon the lifestyles of indigenous populations. In the absence of directly relevant international practice, the experience of domestic courts assumes considerable significance.

Keywords:   subsistence lifestyle, indigenous communities, environmental valuation problem, indigenous peoples, domestic courts
