INVITATION AND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

 

Aquaresources include water, salt, minerals and aquatic

bioresources, those occur in nature as freshwater, brackish water

and saltwater ecosystems on earth in ponds, lakes, hot springs, hill

streams, rivers, wetlands, backwaters, salt pans, salt marsh, oceans,

etc. These resources are mostly open access and precious gift of

nature. These are indispensible to the mankind but often abused and

exploited indiscriminately for short term economic gain. Mention

is made that the aquaresources like surface water, in springs, saline

lakes, rivers and oceans and underground water in aquifers in

addition to aquatic and semi-aquatic, microscopic and

macroscopic, edible and commercially important microbes, plants,

animals, etc., are valuable and essential for our survival. But the

vast majority of such aquaresource systems suffer from

degradation, destruction, encroachment and pollution, and can be

increasingly depleted, if not properly managed. As such, these

aquaresources need to be utilized, mined or harvested sustainably

for the benefit of the present as well as future generation.

A large number of people throughout the globe as well as in India

sustain their life and livelihood depending on aquaresources

including mineral resources, fodder, food and fishery resources. It

is, therefore, felt essential to arrest the adverse effects on these

natural aquaresources as well as express our care and concerns

towards wise and sustainable use of these resources. Keeping this in

view, a one-day National Seminar will be held on 14th February,

2015. Eminent geologists, scientists, sociologists and

knowledgeable people are expected in this seminar from various

parts of the country to share their scientific data, care, concerns and

impact on livelihood orally by invited speakers and eminent

workers as well as poster presentation by students and researchers

on the theme of the seminar. Interested researchers, post graduate

students, scientists, participants and all concerned persons are

requested to contribute their papers and register their names and

contact the organizing committee regarding queries, if any, to

attend the seminar.

 

                

TARGET AUDIENCE

 

The target audience would be geologists, biologists,

environmentalists, scientists, sociologists, college and university

students, administrative personnel, and also stake holders, etc.,

working or depending on water, salt, minerals, fodder, food and

fishery resources occurring in wetlands, aquifers and oceans in and

around the country.

ABOUT THE SEMINAR

 

Biological Resources were earlier regarded as “Common Heritage” of mankind. But this notion has changed. Today, even the Taditional Knowledge (TK) associated with living resources is an intangible component of the resource itself. As TK needs to preserved through documentation and also to be protected from being exploited and misused commercially. Convention on Bilogical Diversity (CBD) under Article 8(j) provides for respecting, protecting and rewarding the Knowledge, Innovations and Practices (KIP) of local communities. In this context the proposed seminar will provide a platform for presenting and gathering data and information on traditional knowledge and social practices, which will help to promote biodiversity conservation issues.

 

Keeping this in view, a one-day Seminar will be held on 24th September, 2011. The eminent scientists and sociologists will deliver lectures along with presentation of paper by participants (oral / poster) on the theme of the Seminar.

Traditional knowledge and beliefs on biodiversity

We all have important values and ideas, things we care about and want to share. Sometimes we feel our ideas can even change the world, and we want to let other people know how they can join in and make all our lives better.

This site will present our organization's cause or ideas to the world. As communicating isn't always easy, we'll try to include photos and images that convey our message (remember, a well-chosen picture is a great way to get a point across). We'll also include specific information about our organization and its members, so no one forgets the people behind the pictures.

On this home page, we'll introduce our cause or message. We'll also try to include a picture or two that represents the kind of work we do.

Mission Statement

To ensure people get the right idea, we'll include a brief statement here that describes our organization. We'll tell people what we want to accomplish and exactly how we plan to do it.

If our nonprofit is dedicated to saving a local landmark, we may include a picture of the building here.
