population especially the youth aware of the value of biodiversity use resources sustainably and conserve the environment How a biodiversity register could help conservation A high rate of population growth and increased pace of industrialisation and urbanisation have led to the over-extraction of natural resources disruption of wild habitats concretisation of the landscape and contamination of natural resources We consume 275 times the natural resources than India’s bio-capacity or the ability to generate renewable resources and absorb waste according to the2017 reportby the Global Footprint Network a US and Switzerland-based independent think tank that develops and promotes tools for sustainability Indians will consume more and more resources as wealth grows and consumption rises “Knowing their ecosystem will be the real empowerment of the people at the grassroots” according to Madhav Gadgil an environmentalist and emeritus scientist at the National Centre for Cell Science Savitribai Phule Pune University The Biological Diversity Act puts theonus of conservation in the hands of people at the grassroots through BMCs and biodiversity registers Though people have been preserving this knowledge in written oral and other folk forms for centuries PBRs come with legal and scientific backing For instance “a biodiversity register can be used to challenge shoddy studies done by industries to get environmental clearances for their projects” said Gadgil who was part of the committee that drafted the Act and prepared the manual for PBRs The register can also help people earn money as BMCs can levy a fee on anyone collecting a biological resource like medicinal herbs for commercial purposes Local people are also entitled to get a share of the profit companies make through the use of a biological resource or local knowledge Source: National Biodiversity Authority Slow implementation of the law puts the environment at risk Till July 2017 only 62502

participation of local BMCs by involving college students university teachers and non-governmental organisations said a 2012studyof three states by Kalpavriksh a non-profit working on environmental and social issues and the Foundation for Ecological Security a non-profit working on nature conservation “In most states preparation of biodiversity registers has become a target-driven exercise” Kanchi Kohli who works with Kalpavriksh and was one of the researchers of the study toldIndiaSpend “Involving NGOs and students can be a good awareness exercise but should not come at the cost of local participation because that impacts the veracity of the document and its functionality” Involvement of locals is also essential for continuous monitoring and evaluation of the ecosystem “A technical expert leaves after preparing the PBR but it’s the locals who will use and manage the resources” said Balakrishna Pisupati former chairman of the National Biodiversity Authority “The main aim of the Act is to equip them with enough knowledge so they can routinely review the bio wealth But several state biodiversity boards are treating PBRs like project reports which need to be finished and stacked in the office” “Different states have used different approaches and hence quality of PBRs also differ Capacity building at the grassroots has been a big challenge” said a senior official of the National Biodiversity Authority speaking on condition of anonymity “Still there are many instances where PBRs have led to conservation of traditional cattle breeds and crop varieties among
