Community research contributes to inform sustainable governance of ecosystems and biodiversity
This report is a summary of the walking workshop “International exchange meeting for mobilisation of indigenous and local knowledge for community and ecosystem wellbeing”, held in Hin Lad Nai, Chiang Rai, Thailand, February 13–15, 2016. The workshop was kindly hosted by Pgakenyaw Association for Sustainable Development (PASD) and the Hin Lad Nai community, and arranged together with Inter Mountain Peoples Education and Culture in Thailand Association (IMPECT) and SwedBio.
The report summarises the presentations and the discussions during the workshop. The workshop was held as part of an on-going dialogue process, started in Guna Yala in 2012, regarding ways of bridging across knowledge systems based on equity and reciprocity, and the usefulness for all involved.
The workshop used an interactive “walking workshop” method, facilitating participants to interact with the rotational farming landscape of Hin Lad Nai and articulate experiences from their own landscapes in discussions with community representatives.
