Abstract: A forum on Indigenous knowledge and biodiversity in India and Australia took place at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) on 1-3 August 2012. The forum provided an opportunity for dialogue on comparative issues in Indigenous knowledge and biodiversity in Australia and India from the perspective of intellectual property and biodiversity laws and policies. The forum explored current and future directions regarding the implementation and operation of these laws and policies, particularly with respect to the rights and interests of Indigenous and local peoples. Emphasis was given to Indigenous peoples’ activities in formulating their own approaches regarding the protection and use of their knowledge, as well as advocating for rights and recognition, and participation in policy development.
