PiN assessments will focus on peopleâ€™s material use of bio-diversity (e.g. for food and nutrition, health and medicine, energy, shelter, income, ceremony and trade), recognising that use is embedded within worldviews that include deepseated cultural norms, values and understandings. These assessments will also conside symbolic interrelationships with nature expressed through cultural narratives, language, and traditions, including diverse understandings of sacred and spiritual aspects of nature and our relationship with natural resources.
