DOCUMENTATION OF TRADITIONAL BEST PRACTICES
Meghalaya is one of the state in India which is rich in traditional knowledge and best practices practiced by indigenous tribes in which many of them are of old age traditions. Many of these knowledge and practices were closely related to their livelihood. With modern technology especially in agriculture, such practices have gradually depleting from the community. Documentation of such traditional knowledge has attracted increasing attention in recent years from governments and cultural institutions as well as from indigenous peoples and local communities. In order to facilitate such knowledge and practices the Centre strongly play a part in preserving those treasures by documenting such practices from time to time and maintaining them in the form of pamphlets or in near future as an organized data set, such as paper files, digital databases and traditional knowledge digital library.
