Indigenous and local knowledge (ILK) refers to the knowledge which has been developed from the experience gained over centuries by people living in a specific area and that are embedded in community practices. Utilising ILK can help in avoiding many typical pitfalls in land use planning. Thus collecting it wisely should be one tool for all bodies operating with land use planning, especially in areas that are very sensitive or culturally valuable.
