    Hi Nettie,
    I’ve looked at the task groups and quite frankly am having a hard time figuring out where to chip in. The reason I say that is that I deal with Local and Traditional Knowledge a lot and the issues seem to expand upon the descriptions currently in the task groups or another way to say that would be that the issues spread across all of the task groups and need to be taken into account in each. Are there other people in the IG that deal with LTK?
    Thanks and looking forward to the telecon…
