PDF File Size: 1.99 MB | Download   
It is estimated that there are 350-400 million indigenous people living in 70 countries of the world. Two thirds of these people live in Asia and about 50 per cent of them live below the poverty line. Despite the lack of monetary income, indigenous peoples have subsisted on the resources found in their traditional territories. They have acquired intricate knowledge of their lands, territories and resources, and they have developed advanced skills and diversified strategies for survival even under very harsh conditions. Such knowledge and skills – for example, in conservation and management of natural resources – acquired through generations of experience, could offer appropriate solutions to some of the crucial challenges of the present time, including climate change and food security.
