About the Book

This work critically examines the linkages between the IKS and contemporary development practices, with the Galo tribe of Arunachal Pradesh in Northeast India as a case study. Essentially, the context explored in the book relates to the status and sustenance of IKS in relation to a market-led development process from a theoretical perspective, drawing on empirical evidence. The work is an interdisciplinary enquiry into critical areas emerging from the connections between IKS and development interventions in tribal communities, which have further bearing on policies and programmes. It will undoubtedly be useful to scholars, academics, planners, bureaucrats, NGO activists and other development practitioners interested in the dynamics of people-centred development emerging from the relations between indigenous knowledge and development strategies.
