Abstract

This article explores the philosophical underpinnings of African indigenous knowledge that can be harnessed towards the improvement of resource management and utilization in Zimbabwe's newly resettled areas. The main argument of the article is that government programmes in newly resettled areas have thus far tended to sideline the role of African indigenous knowledge systems in championing development. The study concludes by recommending that indigenous knowledge systems need to be recognized as having a decisive role in the administration of public goods and certainly in the management of natural resources in Zimbabwe's newly resettled areas.
