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.

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.
