‘Traditional’ knowledge is a key resource for sustainable development that empowers local & indigenous communities in their struggle against marginalisation and impoverishment.

Focal areas for action through intersectoral field projects include:

strengthening dialogue between elders and youth to revitalise local & indigenous knowledge transmission


reinforcing synergies between science and local knowledge in natural resource conservation and governance


identifying novel strategies to protect this intangible cultural heritage from improper appropriation
