to evolve a proper and precise methodology for conserving the ecology, a national biodiversity strategy and action plan (nbsap) was inaugurated in New Delhi recently.
It will cover areas such as natural ecosystems, wild species and their varieties, agricultural ecosystems and domestic species and their varieties.
Issues such as conservation, sustainable use, ethical practices, and cultural, scientific and economic dimensions of biological diversity will be looked into. If everything goes as planned, in a period of two years researchers will be able to develop a mechanism to save the country's biodiversity.
The plan aims to maximise participation of villagers, non-governmental organisations, academics and scientists and especially the government officials and politicians.
