Project Summary:
This project will assess the impacts of Covid-19 on Indigenous traditional farming. Using farm surveys, participatory video and satellite radar analysis, it aims to investigate short term biodiversity, traditional knowledge, and livelihood impacts of Covid-related resurgence in traditional forest-based rotational farming, and collate lessons learnt to sustain the benefits and mitigate the deleterious effects in the long-term. Findings will inform policies incentivising Indigenous food sovereignty, biodiversity conservation and resilience to escalating disruptive events, from pandemics to climate change weather extremes.
