Living Knowledge – The Making of Knowledge about Biodiversity among Indigenous Peoples in the Colombian Amazon
Kronik, Jakob, 2010.(Book of 207pp)
Lambert Academic Publishing. Saarbrücken.
This study addresses the production and reproduction of indigenous peoples’ knowledge systems, particularly when they are related to biological diversity.
The conceptual concern is the relationship between the generation, maintenance and change of such bodies and systems of knowledge and livelihood strategies.
The main analyses are based on a total of seven months of fieldwork over a period of 3 years in Colombia among the Muinane and Uitoto peoples of Northwestern Amazon.
The aim is to feed into the on-going political struggle concerning rights of access to and use and conservation of biological diversity and associated knowledge, by contributing to the understanding of the relationship between living and knowing.
The role of indigenous knowledge in crafting adaptation and mitigation strategies to climate change in Latin America
Kronik, Jakob, and Dorte Verner – 2009
in Robin Mearns and Andrew Norton, Social Dimensions of Climate Change: Equity and Vulnerability in a Warming World. Washington, DC: The World Bank.
Peer reviewed – Conference Edition presented at the UNFCCC meeting in Barcelona Nov. 2009 and final Journal Version presented at the COP15 in Copenhagen Dec. 2009.
On the eve of the Copenhagen COP15 meetings, The Social Development Department of the World Bank announced the publication of Social Dimensions of Climate Change: Equity and Vulnerability in a Warming World. In March 2008, the Social Development Department’s Social Dimensions of Climate Change (SDV-SDCC) work program was launched with an international workshop to take stock of the current state of knowledge on the social development implications of climate change. Social Dimensions of Climate Change: Equity and Vulnerability in a Warming World, contains the final versions of the papers prepared for the workshop, with additional, newly commissioned contributions. The book focuses attention on previously neglected and poorly understood social dimensions of climate change. It highlights equity and vulnerability as central organizing themes and illustrates the multiple ways that pro-poor climate policy and action should be integrated into existing approaches to poverty reduction and development—from the local to the global levels. This integration is needed both in terms of pro-poor approaches to climate change adaptation and in terms of better managing the social risks and potential benefits associated with measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.We invite you to browse the book by clicking on the links above or the cover photo of the book and encourage you to share and comment.
What can we learn from indigenous peoples cultural institutions for climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies?
