Traditional and grassroots knowledge has played a critical role in domestic economies across the globe since ages. This traditional knowledge (TK) develops within indigenous communities through generations of learning, gaining experience of the surrounding, and adapting to the native environment, and it is transmitted from one generation to another. It is the key to sustainable development and growth of the global economy. It harbors the immense potential to sustainably address several environmental, social, and economic concerns arising in both developed and developing economies. Some prominent examples include the use of TK and innovative technologies using microbial and biotechnological processes for dietary supplements to preventive medicines; agro-waste to bioenergy; and many more. Across the globe, several countries, including India, have channelized their TK to create modern amenities such as pharmacy, biofiber for clothing, involved in sustainable development of native communities along with upliftment of economy. United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity which emphasizes the equitable sharing of bioresources has also highlighted its importance not only to those who are directly dependent on it but also at a global scale for modern industries and agriculture if the technology transfer is carried out ethically and sustainably. The technology transfer awareness and its spread to the masses are integral for the upliftment of the global circular bioeconomy. © 2022 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
