Traditional knowledge is passed from generation to generation within communities. Traditional knowledge of tribals and villagers from remote areas has enabled them to survive adverse conditions. However, this knowledge is mostly restricted to the particular localities. This traditional knowledge about ethnobotany, ecology, traditional medicines, food resources, crops, crafts, cultural activities etc. need to be documented and conserved. Traditional knowledge has great significance and need to be shared with the outside world. There is a great need to develop a platform where tribal/villagers can share and exchange their knowledge.
Keeping this in mind, it is proposed to develop a web based platform which will be user friendly and villagers can easily enter information in the platform. By this way, they can directly contribute in the knowledge database.
