Participatory mapping as a tool for mobilisation of indigenous and local knowledge and enhanced ecosystem governance in Ginderberet, Oroma region, Ethiopia
A contribution to the Piloting of the Multiple Evidence Base Approach
This report presents the outcomes of a collaborative partnership between MELCA, Ethiopia and SwedBio for piloting a Multiple Evidence Base approach to co-generate knowledge and methods for mutual learning across knowledge systems.
A process based on participatory mapping supported the community of Haroberabo to reconnect and reevaluate their relationship with their land. The soil and water conservation activities that are now taking place at Gindeberet are all based on the outcome of the mapping, and reflect the people´s attachment to their land and their desire to do something to revive their landscape and their traditional knowledge on how to manage it sustainably.
