Feasibility of Managing Traditional Knowledge from the Culture on the Territory

Catherine Sylvia Rosas-Bustos


In the context of globality, there has been a sustained migration from the countryside to the city, which has generated a loss of traditional knowledge of rural and indigenous Latin American communities.

Faced with the need to recover this knowledge, and in this requirement to efficiently manage resources, the objective was to create an initial strategy for evaluating the feasibility of managing this knowledge. For this, two “case studies” were carried out, the “Construction System of mud and straw houses, in the commune of Colchane, Tarapacá region, northern Chile.”, And the “Rural Women’s Table in the commune of Licantén, Maule region, southern Chile.

In these cases, it was verified if there is still a system of activities and interconnection between knowledge, which allowed us to corroborate the feasibility of managing this knowledge, as heritage and resource for the sustainable development of the communities in its territory.
