IPPC 2015

Neelum Valley, Azad Kashmir


In 2015, research aimed to map out traditional and indigenous practices of Neelam Valley inhabitants that help preserve natural resources and the current threats to it in order to see effective ways of preserving these practices for the challenging future. For the Audio Visual Cultures workshop, the field research was carried out on land, animals, plants, water, etc which ultimately lead to listing sixty indigenous practices in this catalog.
