Biocultural Heritage for Sustainable Development: Stakeholder Meeting Centre for Mountain Dynamics, Kalimpong, 1st July 2019
The minutes from the Biocultural Heritage for Sustainable Development stakeholder meeting, at the Centre for Mountain Dynamics, Kalimpong, India July 2019. The project is coordinated by IIED working with Lok Chetna Manch and Centre for Mountain Dynamics in India. It involves 4 countries – India, China, Kenya and Peru, and builds on the SIFOR project (Smallholder Innovation for Resilience). In India the project is focusing on Lingsey and Lingseykha communities in Kalimpong District.
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.
