New in HOORC’s Library: Working with Indigenous Knowledge

This guidebook, produced by Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), offers ideas for improving design, delivery, monitoring and evaluation of research programmes in natural resources management through inclusion of the knowledge of local communities. Methods of incorporating indigenous knowledge systems into development work are explained, and a useful appendix includes three sets of formal procedural guidelines from the Inuit Tapirisat of Canada, the Dene Cultural Institute and the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction. You can read the book online or find it in HOORC’s Library.
