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 Partnership for Action workshop was a very fruitful and very proactive workshop, with lots of new information and inputs that built upon the participants’ knowledge on what a “data cycle and ecosystem” means. I particularly enjoyed the group exercise on data collection, sharing, dissemination and feedback, which definitely was a very insightful “takeaway” from the workshop."
