UNDP India in partnership with the National Biodiversity Authority (NBA), conducted the webinar “Introduction to the Biological Diversity Act of India: Historical Perspectives”, on June 24th, as part of a Webinar series on Biodiversity and Biological Diversity Act 2002, and within the framework of the Virtual Celebration of International Day for Biological Diversity.
The Biological Diversity Act served well to achieve the goals of conservation of biodiversity, sustainable utilization of biodiversity and fair and equitable sharing. Nevertheless, the understanding of this legal framework and issues related to its implementation have not been completely understood by a large number of stakeholders.
The Webinar Series was presented and designed by the Hon’ble Minister for Environment, Forests and Climate Change of India at Indira Paryavaran Bhawan, New Delhi, Sh. Prakash Javadekar, to bring in leading experts and practitioners to share their professional expertise on this matter, highlighting the participation of Dr. P. L. Gautam, an eminent Agricultural Scientist and former Chairperson of the National Biodiversity Authority (NBA) as an invited speaker.
