Urban Resilience – The Importance of City Forests

This event will focus on ways to translate indigenous knowledge into vital innovations for conserving and restoring landscapes around the world. Traditional ways of managing landscapes have often been regarded as retrogressive, but it is becoming increasingly apparent that indigenous communities hold place-based knowledge that resonates with wisdom because it is intimately connected to the culture, history and identity of people living on the land. As we search for effective Post Covid-19 resilience strategies, to address critical issues such as biodiversity loss, land degradation and climate.

Indigenous knowledge, also known as Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), is essentially the cumulative body of knowledge associated with ecological relationships, which is handed down through generations by Indigenous people. Indigenous knowledge is also the social capital of the poor, their main asset to invest in the struggle for survival, to produce food, to provide for shelter or to achieve control of their own lives. People are familiar with indigenous practices and technologies. They can understand, handle, and maintain them better than Western practices and technologies. Indigenous knowledge also draws on local resources.
