The question posed in the foreword of Indilinga Issue 4(2) Can IKS offer Solutions for Modern Problems facing Africa? has consistently appeared in all previous issues. This question therefore highlights the need for a research agenda for African IKS - in fact, the challenge posed to the African Indigenous Knowledge Systems (IKS) is to assure its developmental contribution to the economic, social, cultural and ethical transformation of the African societies. It is therefore imperative that African researchers on IKS engage themselves in a debate about the agenda for their research undertaking.
