Territorial development and local knowledge systems: Engaging local farming knowledge through a right-based approach to agricultural development

Guidance and systemization of experiences

The purpose of this paper is to argue that agricultural development efforts should support the practical integration of different knowledge systems in various areas and sectors of agriculture to reach the sustainable development goals of a happier and healthier humanity and global environment. Beginning with a discussion on some of some basic concepts around knowledge, land and territory, the paper will illustrate some of the different ways of thinking of knowledge system processes as they relate to agricultural stakeholder rights. The paper then aims to emphasize the need for innovative and inclusive participatory processes for engaging local knowledge users in order to diversify knowledge use and support sustainable natural resource management.
