COMPAS - Newsletter for Endogenous Development CM4 Methodologies to Support Endogenous Development
The main activities are documenting indigenous knowledge and carrying out experiments based on local concepts. The traditional leaders are involved in implementing activities to improve indigenous practices relating to agriculture, human and animal health and natural resources. The experiences and insights gained in this process are shared between partners and other development professionals in order to stimulate an intercultural dialogue and support cultural diversity. The Compas programme involves NGOs and universities in 12 countries in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Europe, and is supported by regional and international co-ordinators.
