Food and Environmental Security Imperatives of Indigenous Knowledge System by Gupta D Das
Book Summary:

The most urgent task is to strengthen farm production systems under conditions of uncertain weather patterns. Food and fuel will be the most expensive commodities in coming years. Historically enough most of the developing countries/societies have their ancient tradition in almost all walks of life. Our organized farming is the cause of the start of the current civilization. Simultaneously, this organized farming is viewed as the beginning of the threatened earth. Indigenous agriculture and experiential knowledge gained global recognition in the last few decades. Actually during this period a rapidly growing set of evidence indicates a strong relationship between indigenous technical knowledge and sustainable development. Indigenous people practicing farming are really excellent conservators of biodiversity.
