Food security and the governance of local knowledge in India and Indonesia (2018–2023)


Law, Environment and Development Centre researchers contribute to the Australian Research Council project seeking to:

  • Examine the ways small farmers identify, conserve and exchange useful plant material and incorporate it into cultivated crops through plant selection and breeding under conditions of climate change.
  • Identify the ways regulatory structures in India and Indonesia help or hinder this process.
  • Identify opportunities for the application of such local knowledge and its regulatory framework in Australia.
