Abstract
Traditional forest-related knowledge (TFRK), most often tightly
interwoven with traditional religious beliefs, customs, folklore,
land-use practices and community-level decision-making processes,
has sustained the cultures, livelihoods, and agricultural
resource management systems of local and indigenous communities
throughout Asia for centuries. Traditional knowledge
systems in Asia, as in the rest of the world, have historically been
dynamic, responding and adapting to changing environmental,
social, economic and political conditions to ensure that forests and
associated agricultural lands continue to provide tangible (foods,
medicines, wood and other non-timber forest products, water and
fertile soils) and intangible (spiritual, social and psychological
health) benefits for present and future generations.
