IIED is working with partners in China, India, Kenya and Peru to explore how the interlinked traditional knowledge, biodiversity, culture and landscapes – the biocultural heritage – of indigenous peoples can contribute to sustainable development. This research will contribute directly to establishing new biocultural heritage territories through a process that builds on the successful Potato Park model.
