Why is it important?

Analysis of the data showed that indigenous ecological knowledge is a potential resource that can complement scientific means of dealing with the region's environmental problems.


I have through this study established that indigenous ecological knowledge is an important tool which cannot be ignored when environmental problems are being discussed, es[pecailly in the developing world.
