The NGO Advisory Group on Health Promotion has chosen Local Wisdom as focus area of its activities in 2008. The Task Force set up at the NGO AGHP Planning Meeting, 21 May 2008, during WHA61, has launched a discussion about a project proposal “Grass-roots advocacy and action for community development“. The aim is to identify local/regional networks and collect their successful initiatives which advocate for the use of local knowledge and community assets. The project would demonstrate the benefits of globalizing indigenous knowledge and provide a framework for NGOs for strengthening grass-roots advocacy in this process.
