Ajith Radhakrishnan

The Declaration would further the long cherished goal of helping the mainstreaming of indigenous communities in the developed societies. New platforms and initiatives should be ensured to help transfer the rich ethno-botanical knowledge resources to the community knowledge repositories and formalise the systems for ensuring sustainable development interventions in modern societies. This would also help the humanity in realising that the indigenous communities are very much part of the society and life as much as we are.
