IPBES Call for Submissions: Indigenous and Local Knowledge on pollination and pollinators associated with food production
06.10.2014

The Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) is conducting a global assessment on pollination and pollinators associated with food production. In addition to scientific knowledge, this assessment is to be based on knowledge, observations and understandings of indigenous peoples and local communities.

This world-wide Call for Submissions is addressed to indigenous peoples, local communities, ILK holders, ILK experts, natural and social scientists from developing and developed countries, beekeepers/honey producers and their organizations, and other relevant groups.

You can contribute by letting us know about:

1. Past or on-going projects on indigenous and local knowledge (ILK) about pollinators, pollination and their relationships to food production. For example, this may include ILK about the pollination of local crops and wild food plants, or about pollinators as food producers (ex. honey produced by bees) or about pollinators as food (ex. birds,
bats, insects as food);
2. Scientific and grey literature on ILK about pollinators, pollination and/or their relationship to food production;
3. ILK holders, researchers or other knowledgeable individuals who are or have been involved in projects on ILK about pollinators, pollination and/or their relationship to food production/consumption.

International Workshop

A limited number of contributors (ILK holders or experts) will be invited to a Dialogue Workshop to be held late November or early December 2014(location to be determined). Invited contributors will receive a modest grant to assist them with compiling ILK from their sites and networks.

To make your submission and for additional information, please go to:

Deadline for Submissions: 10 October 2014
