Abstract: Traditional Knowledge is integrally linked to human welfare. The necessity to harvest traditional knowledge is being increasingly realized due to a multitude of reasons. Definitional considerations, protection and enforcement mechanisms related to traditional knowledge have been a part of the continued deliberations in international and national fora. Climate change has arguably brought the urgent need for its rapid inclusion. The protection of traditional knowledge (TK) associated with the use of bioresources and human practices for livelihood sustenance are an important reference point for its inclusive approach. Among the mega-biodiverse nations, India has a rich source of TK with varied communities and cultural contexts. The present study analyses the post Nagoya context in relation to emerging perspectives for TK protection and India’s commitment post the Nagoya Protocol.
