Following its success in 2015, the CHLP, CIPR and CHR under the aegis of NUALS is holding its annual International Seminar with the Central Theme as Traditional Knowledge in 2016.
This theme is based on the discourse of health, human rights and intellectual property on traditional knowledge, which has evolved through numerous years of regular experimentation on a day to day basis of available resources by communities. Numerous studies have pointed to the increasing significance of such knowledge systems as an integral component of sustainable development in India.
The culture and knowledge systems of indigenous people and their institutions provide useful frameworks, ideas, guiding principles, procedures and practices that can serve as a foundation for effective endogenous development options for restoring social, economic and environmental resilience in many parts of the country.
