Stone Village Declaration (May 2016)

In May 2016, over 50 indigenous people and traditional farmers, representing 18 mountain communities in China, Nepal, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan and Peru, gathered in the Stone Village, Yunnan, China, to assess the effectiveness of biocultural heritage-based approaches for climate change adaptation and to share experiences and key methods and tools for adaptation.

This declaration, issued by the International Network
of Mountain Indigenous Peoples (INMIP), outlines the key messages from that meeting and issues a call for action among governments, research organisations, civil society organisations and the international community.

Project information

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.
