Workshop on Indigenous knowledge and Agroecology in the context of climate change, which took place on 17 July 2019 in Thai Nguyen city, Vietnam.

The event brought together over 50 participants from more than 8 provinces in northern Vietnam, representing government agencies, civil society organizations, academia, and the private sector.

As expected, the workshop aims were to provide a space for discussion about the ways in which indigenous knowledge and agroecology can be applied more inclusive in the context of climate change; to enhance the awareness and understanding of Indigenous knowledge-based climate change resilience practices of participants from government officials, academics, CSOs, ADC’s partners; and to learn from the good practices found and discuss to generate ideas and figure out solutions for developing the use of indigenous knowledge and agroecology in the next steps.

Besides being a place to share valuable experiences and lessons about indigenous knowledge and agroecological practices adapting to climate change, the workshop also provided a valuable networking opportunity and set the stage for further cooperation among organizations, institutions, universities, and government agencies.

The workshop began with opening remarks by Dr. Ho Ngoc Son, project leader, and continued with interactive presentations, discussions and briefings on topics of interest to the future agroecology and indigenous knowledge in the context of climate change. It concluded with a set of noteworthy recommendations to promote the use of indigenous knowledge and agroecology.
