Mini-case studies

This section features 10 mini-case studies. They are based on field experiences of IIRR and several other organizations.

Each case highlights one or several of the many ways development projects: can build on IK, what can be done, and what hasn't worked. In particular case studies illustrate:

- the use of IK in planning, and the integration of IK recording in planing.

- the application of different types of IK (such as i technologies, animals and plants, human resources, local organizations, and schemes) during project implementation.

- the use of selected methods in recording and assessing IK.

- the modification of selected IK challenges faced when introducing to extensionists IK as a useful resource.

The cases are short and focus on project aspects which relate to IK.
