Research and joint construction of knowledge
|All those who interact with agricultural and food biodiversity carry knowledge, experience, and reflection that can prove useful for innovating techniques and methods for food provisioning in a troubled world. The sort of knowledge held by university and academic researchers and by specialized technicians can complement that of the practitioners in the field to create innovative devices. Democratizing agricultural research is extremely necessary for equitable and efficient collaboration with peasant communities.|
