Women's Leadership on Traditional Knowledge and Biodiversity

A five-day workshop on women’s leadership on traditional knowledge and biodiversity was held in Panna, Madhya Pradesh, in which Adivasi women and representatives of nongovernmental organisations from Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Karnataka took part.

Based on a feminist and environmental perspective that re-centres women’s role in nature resource governance and knowledge production, the workshop conducted sessions on documentation for claiming forest rights, community forest resources and biodiversity mapping. It also involved a hands-on engagement with medicinal herbs and non-timber forest produce (NTFP) through their collection, discussion on their medicinal properties and preparation of traditional recipes which provided a space for knowledge sharing and reinforced the women’s understanding of their relationship with the forest and its wealth.
