Local and indigenous knowledge refers to the understandings, skills and philosophies developed by societies with long histories of interaction with their natural surroundings. For rural and Indigenous Peoples, local knowledge informs decision-making about fundamental aspects of day-to-day life.
“The Land Portal plays a critical convening and connecting role in the land sector. They have been an incredibly dynamic, innovative and responsive DFID partner under the LEGEND programme. In just a few years they have delivered on their goal to become the go-to site for land governance information and are now also facilitating important global discussions on land. We value Land Portal’s central commitment to open data and to connecting people and stories on land in the global north and south.”
