I’m pretty excited about this site so far! I liked the name right away, but was wary about how this information is being managed and if cultural/intellectual property rights were being respected. It’s a UNESCO site and they ensure that “Thanks to its study and classification activities, the Traditional Knowledge World Bank protects the rights of local communities who hold knowledge. It fosters the recognition of communities’ property rights and it protects them juridically at an International level.”
The site contains information about traditional agricultural practices, water management, architecture, social organizations, art, spirituality of various regions. The goal is more responsible or informed environmental stewardship, which is the direction I think my project is going.
