Experience Sharing Workshop  | FAO in India | Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations


11/03/2019

The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC) and National Biodiversity Authority (NBA) with FAO have developed a project on ‘Strengthening Agriculture and Allied Sector Contributions to India’s National Biodiversity Action Plan (NBAP) 2008 and National Biodiversity Targets (NBTs)’. The project is being implemented in the states of Punjab, Kerala and Mizoram.

The project is now mid-way through its implementation. A two-day experience-sharing workshop under this project was organised on March 06-07, 2019 in New Delhi. This workshop with all the state partners was aimed at looking at the work done in the project so far, particularly on addressing the following two objectives:

  • Conduct systematic and comprehensive review of agriculture and allied sectors commitments at national, state and local levels to agrobiodiversity conservation and reporting as per the NBAP 2014.
  • Enhance capacity of stakeholders engaged in the conservation and use of agrobiodiversity at national, state and local levels in developing a multi-stakeholder action plan to help achieve implementation of relevant NBTs.

State partners shared preliminary state legal and policy reviews as also draft curricula on agrobiodiversity for capacity building at the site level in each of the project states.

The workshop also reviewed specific next steps towards the implementation of the project.
