INVENTORY OF TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE TO COMBAT DESERTIFICATION

Data visualization, 2010

A prototype system developed thanks to UNESCO’s contribution. Today, while entire planet systems risk ecological collapse, Traditional Knowledge shows how to interact with the environment enhancing its resource potential without exhausting it. It is possible to consult a dynamic questionnaire based on the Iconographic classification System of Traditional and Innovative Techniques (SITTI) and  constitutes a guideline for the recognition and notification of new knowledge. The information (texts, graphics, photographs) is placed, through geo-reference, in a Geographical World Map System. Thanks to its study and classification activities, the Traditional Knowledge World Bank protects the rights of local communities who hold knowledge.
