Indigenous knowledge & biodiversity

The CSIR acknowledges the importance of indigenous knowledge and indigenous knowledge systems and their contribution to scientific research.  The CSIR works closely with indigenous knowledge holders to validate properties and technologies brought to the CSIR.  Where indigenous knowledge is used in the development of IP at the CSIR, the CSIR undertakes to share the benefits with the relevant indigenous knowledge holders according to the principles set out in SA and international law.
