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 webinar and related discussions on women's land rights in India gave me some crucial inputs for further analysis and need for data to be collected on this subject, which helped me to conceptualise the land rights question in the economic justice framework. I would recommend such webinars and research sharing workshops to be taken by Land Portal in future and for Land Portal itself to be engaging with policy- and action -oriented researchers on a regular basis in the the near future. It should not be treated as a one time activity, as this subject is generating interest in both policy and civil society circles."
