Centre for Scientific Research, Indigenous Knowledge and Innovation (CesrIKi)

CesrIKi recognises that our societies have, over the centuries, built a huge store of Indigenous Knowledge Systems (IKS) and wisdom that needs to be explored, documented, studied as well as modernised. We regard IKS as vital sources of:

  • knowledge development,
  • innovation and
  • Entrepreneurship.

CesrIKi is an interdisciplinary and science focused research centre embracing the basic and applied sciences of IK. We are involved in Research, Documentation, Education and Awareness, and development efforts in Health, Food systems, Agriculture and Environmental management. Special attention is paid to the development of participatory research approaches to establish close links with communities.

We are set on improving socio-economic lives of communities and IK holders through mutual respect and trustful working relations.
