Inglis, J. (ed.)
MetadataShow full item record
The papers selected for this volume represent a wide range of perspectives on the nature of Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK). They explore the underlying concepts, provide case studies, and confirm once again the importance and, as yet, unrealized potential of TEK in resource and environmental management. The papers reinforce the conviction that TEK can make a major contribution to the delivery of Agenda 21 of the UN Earth Summit and to sustainable development. The papers also reinforce the point that indigenous and local peoples have themselves lived in harmony with their environments for many hundreds of years, a relationship which is evident in many of their activities today.
