Traditional Knowledge Information Portal (M3, #3)

Traditional Knowledge Information Portal


The goal of Traditional Knowledge Information Portal is to “promote awareness and enhance access by indigenous and local communities and other interested parties to information on traditional knowledge, innovations and practices relevant for the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity.”  This website does not document traditional knowledge rather disseminates information “ relevant to and about traditional knowledge.”  For this purpose, a resource center, local organizations’ postings and photo albums are made available.  The resource center is particularly useful as it contains links to websites of interest to any researcher.

The six websites features as related resources are:  Centre for Agriculture and Biosciences International, Indigenous Portal, Inter-American Commission on human Rights, The International Ecotourism Society, World Intellectual Property Organization, WWF’s Statement of Principles on Indigenous Peoples and Conservation.

The information in this website is easily retrievable through a simple search.
