Indigenous Peoples - Lands, Territories and Natural Resources Hundreds of indigenous tribespeople in north-eastern India are rushing to reclaim lands from which they were removed decades ago for. The conservation of the traditional varieties is clearly closely linked to the survival of consumption practices and rites which explain the rational utilisation of resources in accordance with a predominantly Maya vision of the cosmos and with that of other indigenous populations. 3. The genetic resources . knowledge for genetic resources and for the sustainable livelihoods of these communities, especially conservation and management of crop wild relatives and wild food plants’, ‘Promote agro-ecosystems genetic resource, the rights indigenous and local communities may have over the resource be taken.   With the growing interest in conservation of genetic resources in the agro-ecosystem where crop species have evolved (on-farm conservation) [18, 19], indigenous knowledge that locals own is important not only for the society owing it, but also for planners, policy makers and scholars for designing conservation and agro-ecosystem restoration Cited by:

In situ/on-farm conservation of plant genetic resources Conservation of primitive wild species and landraces used by various population groups and farmers for food and feed as well as for medicinal, traditional and ritual purposes within local communities (i.e. on-farm conservation) is of great social, cultural and historical Size: KB. The southeastern part of Nigeria is one of the major hotspots of useful plant genetic resources. These endemic species are associated with a rich indigenous knowledge and cultural diversity in relation to their use and conservation. Sphenostylis stenocarpa (ex. A. Rich.)

Apparently, indigenous knowledge systems (IKS) are now being unjustly negated. They are viewed in some quarters as somehow inherently primitive (Appiah Opoku, ). Indigenous knowledge systems are a body of knowledge, or bodies of knowledge of the indigenous people of particular geographical areas that they have survived on for a very long time. Document or lose it – on the importance of information management for genetic resources conservation. Stephan Weise and Markus Oppermann. Abstract: Crop plants are the basic source of food for humans and animals. In addition, they provide raw materials for the chemical and pharmaceutical industries as well as renewable resources.

This article is from Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine, volume AbstractBackground: Ensete ventricosum (Welw.) Cheesman is a major food security crop. The FAO Commission on Plant Genetic Resources was established in and renamed as the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture in The main objective of the CGRFA is to ensure conservation and sustainable use of genetic resources for food and agriculture as well as fair and equitable sharing of benefits derived from them. Exploiting indigenous knowledge of subsistence farmers’ for the management and conservation of Enset (Ensete ventricosum (Welw.) Cheesman) understanding of the diversity and distribution of enset is important for crop improvement programs and for managing genetic resources.

It makes the conservation and multiplication of plant genetic resources an essential strategy for development of crop genotypes with resilience to climate change and for achieving the overall goal of food security.

Yet an ever increasing world population, and the introduction of improved cultivars into the centers of crop diversity have caused serious erosion of much of the world's indigenous crop germplasm.

Plant genetic resources and traditional knowledge comprise an inimitable universal heritage, and their conservation and utilization are of instantaneous concern. The crucial role in ensuring food security is played by the agro-based industries and enterprises. Advances in plant genetic resources coupled with traditional knowledge of the local tribes and native practices facilitate achievement of food security.

indigenous knowledge (i.e. agriculture, forestry, and fish resources) contributes Indigenous knowledge in conservation of crop genetic resources book to the biodiversity conservation of a country.

However, this knowledge has been lost or denigrated due to lack of knowledge of the importance of indigenous system. Consequently, that there does not seem to be enough efforts in recording and applying those. Farmer or folk crop varieties developed over many generations by indigenous farmers are an important component of global crop genetic resources for use by both industrial and indigenous agriculture.

Smallholder farmers can use diversity of crops as a resource to adapt their crops to environmental changes. In their fields and in the nearby wild areas, there is a huge diversity of plants, which continue to evolve and adapt to changing conditions and so can be used to provide useful genes for new crops.

The three main sections in the book consider the Ethiopian centre of diversity, germplasm collection and conservation in Ethiopia and the evaluation and utilization of Ethiopian genetic resources. A broad range of food and feed crops and plants of medicinal and industrial importance are discussed, both at a national and international level.

Indigenous Knowledge for Biodiversit Conservation Indigenous peoples with a historical continuity of resource-use practices often possess a broad knowledge base of the behaviorof complex ecological systems in theirown localities.

This knowledge has accumulated through a long series of observations transmitted from generation to generation. The results show that indigenous knowledge and institutions play a significant role in conserving natural resources in the study area.

There was gender differentiation in knowledge attitude and practice (KAP) of indigenous knowledge as applied to sustainable land : Chris A. Shisanya. “The book aims to improve the national and international governance of access and benefit sharing (ABS) of genetic resources and Indigenous knowledge,” he said.

“It also explores key historical, doctrinal, and theoretical issues, and suggests ways to reimagine the governance of biodiversity, genetic resources and intellectual property.

This book details the principles of on farm conservation of indigenous seeds. Experiences about on farm conservation efforts from the field has been presented.

It also has a compilation of organisations involved in on farm conservation efforts giving a brief outline about their work and the ways in which farmers are benefitted by such efforts.

Cheesman is a major food security crop in Southern Ethiopia, where it was originally domesticated and during millennia became pivotal crop around which an entire farming system has developed.

Although its cultivation is highly localized, the enset-based farming system provides sustenance to more than 20 million by: For Tibetans in Shangri-la, the crop has a high socio-cultural value. The genetic diversity of landraces managed by the farmers in Shangri-la is an extremely important germplasm resource.

The collective rights to lands and resources of Indigenous peoples have been acknowledged by many governments of the world in their constitutions and in international provisions’. 6 Defined by Gadgil et al (M. Gadgil, F. Berkes and C. Folke ( ) (‘Indigenous Knowledge for Biodiversity Conservation’.

A key event in the conservation of plant genetic resources was the establishment of the International Board for Plant Genetic Resources (IBPGR) (now Bioversity International) inwhose mandate was to promote and assist in the worldwide effort to collect and conserve the plant germplasm needed for future research and production.

IBPGR mobilized scientists to create a global network of gene banks. Global distribution of plant genetic resources. In general, the highest number of species of vascular plants is found in the humid tropics and subtropics [].The species number strongly declines from the tropics and subtropics towards the temperate and polar zone north and south of the equator, indicating that hotspots of biodiversity are mainly associated with warm and humid tropical Cited by: 3.

[NAIROBI] The second phase of a project to conserve the genetic resources of some indigenous crops and vegetables in eastern Africa has been launched in Kenya.

During the launch last month (12 November) scientists recommended conservation of the diversity of the crops’ genetic resources to prevent climate change from making them become extinct.
