The guidelines make reference to project cycle management in the context of natural resources indigenous knowledge research, and present options for reducing conflicts and more effectively including the views of primary stakeholders. Novel topics are covered, such as computer aided analysis of qualitative data and the use of cross- cultural research staff. The methodology is grounded in anthropological and development research, and attempts to be critically aware of contemporary reflective practice. Whatever your interest in indigenous knowledge you will find this book a fascinating and insightful handbook.
