Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) is increasingly recognized for its value in improving people’s livelihoods and increasing the resilience of livelihoods. This research aims to further explore this assertion by understanding the process of how different TEK systems can co-exist and interact, between different groups of people. The research will focus on agricultural knowledge creation between migrant farmers and local farmers in West-Ghana.
