Stephane Passeri
Stephane Passeri, International Consultant on Geographical Indications (GI) at FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific in Thailand. Supporting the development of GI national systems and then teh protection and promotion of origin-linked products in teh Asia-Pacific Region. GI is an intellectual property right which has among key advantages to request full and inclusive ownership by local producers/communities and also provide capacity and incentive to monetize the protection of biodiversity by promoting unique products (and their area of production) developing specific characteristics/qualities linked to specific local genetic materials/environment and local wisdom. Looking forward to exchange further on the matter.

Question: How do we conserve indigenous food systems when government is promoting modern food systems with lots of subsidy? If we don't conserve our indigenous systems soon they will be overtaken by modern agriculture.
Anima Baa
Greetings from India, happy to learn about indigenous people's food systems.
Pheap TUY
Indigenous people typically get low priority in Government intervention, how can we ensure sustainable support in the long run with backing from FAO?
Josiane ElKhoury (FAO)
Now speaking: Hayu Dyah Patria, founder of Mantasa. She is an accomplished food resilience and biodiversity leader in East Java who believes that diversity on our plates will bring back diversity in nature. Although her educational background is in food technology and nutrition, Hayu began discovering the connections between food, environmental issues, and women's issues, leading her to explore these topics through the lens of ecofeminism. Hayu found how rich the traditional knowledge of local and indigenous communities in Indonesia is in utilizing the surrounding plants despite how simultaneously, Indonesia is still one of the countries with the highest malnutrition rates in the world. In 2009, she founded Mantasa to address this discrepancy.
Pheap TUY
Recent developments, such as industrial agriculture, and economic land concession, have shown a negative impact on IP, is there any resolution to ensure their substantial livelihood?
Angela Joehl Cadena
Amazing work, thanks for sharing!
In the name of increasing yield, commercialization of foods have been increased with urbanization. How can we preserve Indigenous Foods systems in a Himalayan country like Nepal where cultivation land is terraces and hills ?
Ram Das Chaudhary
Due to modern seeds of rice in Nepal, we have end up hundreds of indigenous rice seeds. There no exist the indigenous rice seeds. So how we can protect them or retain them again? Thank you.
Watson Puiahi
in terms of indigenous perception how can we manage the way our young people perceiving other food system more important and preferred in terms of choice and preferences?
Charles Tumuhe
How do we identify indigenous peoples? key characteristics /attributes
Minakshi Rokka Chhetri
indigenous values, culture and tradition is less transferred to the new generation due to their more acceptance to globalisation and resistance to the old practices. how can we document the traditional practices with the loss of actual traditional practices that contributed to biodiversity conservation?
Josiane ElKhoury (FAO)
Thank you all for your questions. We will pass them to the speakers.

I am belong to the Khasi Indigenous Peoples community of Meghalaya in North East India. This is an important meeting and we have had excellent presentations. We founded an organisation called NESFAS in North East India to defend and promote Indigenous Peoples Food Systems. We focus in having young staff who respectfully identify Elders who help them to contextualise local knowledge in their work as Edmond said. We organise Agrobiodiversity Walks of young people, women and elders and learn while walking. We are experimenting with School Meals that are supplemented by local wild edibles. We promote local Cafes to promote food with local food. We are working on decentralised green energy. We need to find ways to connect such local initiatives to the global institutions such as those highlighted by Yon and Edmond.
Jirlyne Ingti Katharpi
What are the some of the most important actions that Indigenous Peoples can take to conserve their indigenous foods and knowledge? What are the capacities they need to do this themselves? Is there an efficient mechanism that records, documents and studies such food systems ?
