Traditional knowledge (TK) has contributed immensely to shaping development and human well-being. Its influence spans a variety of sectors, including agriculture, health, education and governance. However, in today's world, TK is increasingly under-represented or under-utilized. Further, while the applicability of Traditional Knowledge to human and environmental welfare is well-recognized, collated information on how Traditional Knowledge contributes to different sectors is not easily accessible. This book focuses on the relevance of Traditional Knowledge to key environment and development related sectors, discusses the current debates within each of these sectors and presents suggestions as to how Traditional Knowledge can be effectively integrated with conventional science and policy.

A valuable resource to researchers, academics and policymakers, Traditional knowledge in policy and practice provides a comprehensive overview of TK, and its links and contributions to social, economic, environmental, ethical and political issues.
