Re: Addressing water scarcity in agriculture: how can indigenous or traditional practices help?

Cecilia Akita

Soil and Water Management (including cross slope barriers)

Management of water using the Indigenous knowledge in the Brong Ahafo region in Ghana includes holding some rivers such as the Tano river as a deity or inhabited by a god, hence prohibiting people from fishing in it. This puts fear in the indigenes thus keeping water bodies well protected and well managed for a longer period. Suggestions by the chiefs and elders are that, there should be bye-laws and subsequently seek protection by global instruments.
