    Center for Indigenous Knowledge for Agriculture and Rural Development
       
    The Center for Indigenous Knowledge for Agriculture and Rural Development (CIKARD) at Iowa State University focuses its activities on preserving and using the local knowledge of farmers and other rural people around the globe. CIKARD was established at Iowa State University in October 1987 as part of ISU's Technology and Social Change Program. Its goal is to collect indigenous knowledge and make it available to development professionals and scientists.
    Indigenous Agriculture
       
    Indigenous knowledge is local knowledge unique to a given culture or society. Indigenous agricultural and environmental knowledge gained global recognition through the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in 1992, and documents such as the World Conservation Strategy (International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) 1980) and Brundtland Commission's Our Common Future (World Commission on Environment and Development (WCED) 1987). Indigenous knowledge is an immensely valuable resource that provides humankind with insights on how communities have interacted with their changing environment.
