Evolution In Action: …To Interpretation

PowerPoint Presentation:

Evolution In Action: From Instruction… “Most conservation approaches are extra-locally derived yet the influence local livelihoods and rely on local actions for effective outcomes. Global localism is proposed as a research approach that substantiates the crucial need to first lean about local places and validate local people’s perspectives on their livelihood resources before proposing and implementing global conservation agendas. This study investigates scientific-ecological and local ethnobotanical knowledge of landscapes, forest community types and important plant species populations as important contribution toward adaptive collaborative management (ACM) at the Manaslu Conservation Area of Nepal …”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Evolution In Action: … To Interpretation “Curvy roads and crashing rivers I follow into the abode of snow --- villages nestled in the Nepalese mountains. Life after the guerrilla war has not been easy. But men, women and children gather when they see me. They share knowledge of their plants and landscapes. Plants for future medicines, food and fiber. I work with the local people to conserve all this; For you, for me and for our children …”
