Resilient Biocultural Heritage Landscapes for Sustainable Mountain Development
Book/Report, 60 pages
The International Network of Mountain Indigenous Peoples (INMIP) aims to support capacity development for climate change adaptation through community-to-community exchange of knowledge and innovations. It currently includes communities from 11 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. It is coordinated by ANDES (Peru), with support from IIED.
INMIP organised its 4th learning exchange in Cusco and Potato Park, Peru, 19–23 April 2017, with support from ANDES and IIED. This report presents the results.
IIED is working with partners in China, India, Kenya and Peru to revitalise traditional knowledge-based – or 'biocultural' – innovation systems of smallholder farmers in order to strengthen food security in the face of climate change. Traditional farmers continually improve and adapt their crops and farming practices in response to new challenges, using local knowledge and biodiversity, generating new technologies and practices.
