Co-producing and utilizing livestock herders’ indigenous knowledge on fodder plant species

Co-producing and utilizing livestock herders’ indigenous knowledge on fodder plant species in semi-arid communal rangelands in South Africa


The aim of this project is to co-produce indigenous knowledge with experienced farmers and herders on fodder species use, value and distribution for sustainable use. It also aims to facilitate knowledge transfer opportunities between farmer generations and Nama communities and to demonstrate the use of the knowledge to improve livestock production for the continuation of the Nama tradition. In order to create a space where indigenous ecological and agricultural knowledge can be transmitted orally or where practical experiences can be shared with future generations.
