The use of Indigenous Knowledge in Agriculture and its Role in Sustainable Development

Haidi Jamal Abdullah, Dr. Tarq K. Hassan

Indigenous knowledge (IK) has become an interesting topic and a growing field of investigation, both nationally and internationally, with increasing attention being paid to IK by academia and institutions. However, until now, an accurate definition of IK remains a great challenge, because there is some degree of argument between the terms IK and scientific knowledge. For this reason this article will focus on two main points, firstly will try to define IK based on aspects which make IK different from scientific knowledge. Secondly, it will try to show the importance of indigenous knowledge in sustainable development by providing a number of examples about the advantages and drawbacks of IK in sustainable development.

Keywords: Indigenous Knowledge IK, sustainable development SD
