Best Practices on Indigenous Knowledge

The Netherlands Organization for International Cooperation in Higher Education / Indigenous Knowledge (NUFFIC/IK-Unit) in co-operation with UNESCO‘s Management of Social Transformations Programme (MOST) has established a Database of best practices on indigenous knowledge. This database is part of the MOST database of Best Practices, which concentrates on poverty alleviation. It contains examples of successful projects illustrating the use of local and indigenous knowledge in the development of cost-effective and sustainable survival strategies, covering Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America and Latin America & Caribbean. It also includes a geographical and thematic index and an index of institutions acting as indigenous knowledge resource centres. NUFFIC (IK-Unit) and MOST have also produced two joint publications entitled “Best Practices on Indigenous Knowledge” and “Best Practices Using Indigenous Knowledge“. They provide further details on indigenous knowledge including the selected practices, indexes and a list of resource centers.
