Abstract: Indigenous people have evolved Traditional Knowledge, which are ecologically sound low cost sustainable technologies to deal with issues related to various agro-eco-systems. Growing commercialization and industrialization over the last two decades has eroded this commitment adversely affecting the quality of care in the context of the global change. Common characteristics of traditional knowledge, key facts and figures of traditional wisdom, successful examples of traditional knowledge for soil and water conservation, food and medicines, insect pests management, and future of traditional knowledge in the global scenario are discussed.
