Mutual learning for the defense, culturally respectful and ethical use of Indigenous biodiversity
February 3, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pmFree
Genetic resources collected in the fields of Indigenous communities has been the raw material out of which biological scientists have developed the crop varieties that are globally traded. The contributions of Indigenous peoples in developing and safeguarding these resources have gone largely unrecognized. In this presentation I will describe the creation of a cooperative endeavor involving representatives of four social groups: Indigenous communities from Mexico, Indigenous communities from Wisconsin, scientists from Mexican universities and scientists from the University of Wisconsin. This scientific and social network proposes to co-create a set of guidelines for the fair, transparent, participatory, and mutually respectful use of plant genetic resources.
