General Information

The term Biodiversity was first coined by Walter G.Rosen in 1986. The biosphere comprises of a
complex collections of innumerable organisms, known as the Biodiversity, which constitute the vital
life support for survival of human race. Biological diversity, abbreviated as biodiversity, represent the
sum total of various life forms such as unicellular fungi, protozoa, bacteria, and multi cellular
organisms such as plants, fishes, and mammals at various biological levels including genes,
habitats, and ecosystem.

However, alarmingly some 75 per cent of the genetic diversity of crop plants has been lost in the
past century. Scientists estimate that as many as 3 species per hour are going extinct and 20,000
extinctions occur each year. About 24 per cent of mammals and 12 per cent of bird species are
currently considered to be globally threatened. More than 50 per cent of the world’s wetlands have
been eroded and populations of inland water and wetland species have declined by 70 per cent
between 1970 and 2010.

In our conscience and consciousness, we can inculcate and adapt a befitting life style that will
prevent further deterioration of biodiversity under threatening climate change leading to disastrous
consequences. Most appropriately the students/children are the worst target of these imminent
climate change. Therefore, a series of lecture-cum-demonstration programme on “Biodiversity
conservation in the face of climate change” are to be organised among the students to save the
mother Earth through raising preparedness essentially covering all categories of afflicted
environment components, people, society and all other living beings.
Title of the Project:

Lecture and Demonstration Programme on “Biodiversity Conservation in the Face of Climate


Summary (abstract) of the proposed project :

India and the world now face one issue so overwhelming, so potentially devastating in consequence,
that nothing less than civilization on our planet is under threat. The teachers must apprise the
students on preventing climate change who inherit the mother Earth as future citizens. Thus, the
future custodians of the planet need to be taught on how to prevent the global warming through
common routine but conscientious efforts. Civil actions must start with solidarity and dedication but
backed by appropriate knowledge. The lecture programme basing on burning aspects of
conservation will focus on practical and feasible options of priority on curbing the rate of biodiversity
deterioration. Comprehensive action plan on conservative initiatives are to be educated at all levels
and India with incentives must adopt and practice now. We must achieve remarkable achievements
in in situ and ex citu conservation of various biodiversity treasures in and around us. Students must
know i) Sustainable use of eco-friendly agriculture, animal husbandry, dairy development, fisheries,
apiculture, sericulture, forestry and industry, ii) Pilot scale demonstrations including farmer's training,
iii) Encourage agro-forestry, organic farming, sustainable afforestation, iv) Build resilient habitats
picking plantation on priority, urban gardens and village ponds and v) Educate on binding laws,
justice and legislation

Objectives of the project – State briefly, clearly and specifically itemized.

Biodiversity is the part of nature which includes difference in genes among the individuals, species of
plants and animals of local importance. Biodiversity Conservation is about saving life on Earth in all
its forms and keeping natural ecosystems functioning and healthy. Life has existed on Earth for over
3.5 billion years. Over 95% of the species that ever existed have gone extinct. To stop current
extinction, we need Soil Conservation, Forest conservation, Environmental Conservation, Land
Conservation, Wildlife Conservation, Plant Conservation, etc. including genetic diversity, species
diversity and ecosystem diversity.

It is imperative to choose new paths for conservation as because various responses to indications
that many traditional methods for conserving biodiversity have proved unsuccessful. The rapid and
ongoing biophysical and societal changes are affecting the way we do science and practice
conservation today.

Different disciplines must converge and make a holistic mission is to foster a interaction between
public authorities, society and scientific stakeholders in the field of biodiversity, at the national, and
international levels. To promote scientific research in relation to society stakes, to develop studies
and synthesis research, to mobilise cross-disciplinary expertise, and to disseminate knowledge are
at the core of its activity.

Hence, the main objective of the programme is to raise scientific awareness among the students
about rapid deterioration of biodiversity, its adverse impact on our eco-system, mitigation options
with backdrop of the climate change. Biodiversity is under serious threat as a result of human
activities. The main dangers worldwide are population growth and resource consumption, climate
change and global warming, habitat conversion and urbanisation, invasive alien species, over-
exploitation of natural resources and environmental degradation. The main factor currently driving
biodiversity loss is habitat destruction-on land; in streams, rivers, and lakes; and in the oceans.
Human activities such as: deforestation; bottom trawling in the oceans; the damming and dredging of
streams, rivers, and lakes; and the draining and degradation of wetlands, estuaries, and mangroves
are responsible.
The main threats to our Biodiversity are Environmental Pollution & Climate Change, so we must
eradicate such threats to Biodiversity by our awareness campaigns, nature studies, through series of
lectures and demonstration programme, following essential components/subjects have to be
systematically addressed:

Agrasar Lecture Series will focus on the role of education in addressing biodiversity conservation,
linking the local, regional and global contexts with particular emphasis on the challenges faced by
humanity in District level islands. Main objectives are:

 Biodiversity and Ecosystems

 Biodiversity and its sustainable development
 Biodiversity conservation methods
 Biodiversity and food security for need based crop biodiversity
 Forestry
The students should also be appraised of Steps Taken by Government of India for Biodiversity
Protection. Important measures include:

1. Enactment of the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972.

2. Wetland (Conservation and Management) Rules 2010 have been framed for protection of
wetlands, in the States.
3. The Centrally Sponsored Scheme of National Plan for Conservation of Aquatic Eco-
System also provides assistance to the States for management of wet lands including Ramsar
sites in the country.
4. Wildlife Crime Control Bureau has been established for control of illegal trade in wildlife,
including endangered species.
5. ‘Integrated Development of Wildlife Habitats’ for the recovery of endangered species
6. Protected Areas, viz, National Parks, Sanctuaries, Conservation Reserves and Community
Reserves all over the country covering the important habitats have been created as per the
provisions of the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972 to provide better protection to wildlife,
including threatened species and their habitat.
7. Financial and technical assistance is extended to the State Governments under various
Centrally Sponsored Schemes,
8. The State Governments have been requested to strengthen the field formations and intensify
patrolling in and around the Protected Areas.
9. Conservation of Medicinal Plants
Target group(s) with location specific information.

programme will be organized during this period)
Project background – State briefly the background and origin of the idea on which the
project proposal is based.

India is a mega-diverse nation and one of the richest nations in terms of biological diversity. India
owes this to its position in the tropical and subtropical latitudes. India has a great diversity of natural
ecosystems ranging from the cold and high Himalayan regions to the sea coasts; from the wet north-
eastern green forests to the dry north-western arid deserts; with different types of forests, wetlands,
islands and the oceans. The diverse physical features and climatic situations have formed ecological
habitats like forests, grasslands, wetlands, coastal and marine ecosystems and desert ecosystems,
which harbour and sustain immense biodiversity. The country is also one of the 12 primary centres of
origin of cultivated plants and domesticated animals.

Biodiversity is essential for maintaining the ecological functions, including stabilizing of the water
cycle, maintenance and replenishment of soil fertility, pollination and cross-fertilization of crops and
other vegetation, protection against soil erosion and stability of food producing and other
ecosystems. Conservation of biological diversity leads to conservation of essential ecological
diversity to preserve the continuity of food chains.

Biodiversity provides the base for the livelihoods, cultures and economies of several hundred
millions of people, including farmers, fisher folk, forest dwellers and artisans. It also provides the
genetic base for the continuous up-gradation of agriculture, fisheries, and for critical discoveries in
scientific, industrial and other sectors. The rapid erosion of biodiversity in the last few decades has
impacted on the health of the land, water bodies and people. Biodiversity is a wealth to which no
value can be put. In the final analysis, the very survival of the human race is dependent on
conservation of biodiversity. It is evident that this invaluable heritage is being destroyed at an
alarming rate due to several reasons. Measures are being taken up at national and international
levels to address this issue.

Experience – Mention briefly similar projects undertaken with details such as title, date
of commencement, supporting agencies (s) , outcome, whether ongoing or completed
etc, Please enclose copy/ copies of sanction letter(s).

The organization has been appointed as Technical Resource Centre (TRC) by DST under PROBE-
Orissa Programme. The programme involves opening PROBE Weather Labouratories within the
school premises in which the students are encouraged to take and record daily weather observation.
From weather data base created by school children, the DST will utilize the PROBE data for
research in universities on the topics aiming a water management,climate change,disaster
mitigation,bio-diversity as well as meso-scale modeling studies to supplement our efforts in achieving
better local forecasts. Through participation in PROBE in different schools young minds will be
exposed to scintific intricacies of weather, will be moved to pursue science as career and will
develop better understanding to take safety measures from weather related hazards. The natures of
scienfic problems proposed to be studies under this project are extreme weather conditions like
cyclone,flood,drought,heat wave,change in moonsoon pattern etc. it is envisages that better
laboratory facilities at secondary level need to be created for reaching higher levels of achievement
in science. WCWS organized numbers of Agrasar Lecture & Demonstration Programme on Water,
Food & Climate Change, Agrasar Lecture Demonstration Programme on Climate Change:
Challenges and Opportunities, Agrasar Lecture and Demonstration programme on Global Warming
and Mitigation Options in Cuttack, Kendrapada, Jajpur, Jagatsinghpur, Puri, Mayurbhanj and Khurda
districts with different topics related to Biodiversity Conservation.

Justification for undertaking the proposed project.

Biodiversity is a wealth to which no value can be put. In the final analysis, the very survival of the
human race is dependent on conservation of biodiversity. It is evident that this invaluable heritage is
being destroyed at an alarming rate due to several reasons. Measures are being taken up at national
and international levels to address this issue.

The purpose of the project is conservation of biodiversity while ensuring sustained and inclusive
development of the community. A model initiative to document endangered, vulnerable and
threatened floral and faunal species of a specific locality, demonstrate and educate the coming
generation of rural and urban students/youth in the vital necessity of conservation in both theoretical
and practical ways so that they can come back full circle to the land.

The students in these eight districts are yet to be adequately yet scientifically educated about the
conservation of biodiversity. The teachers and students of these coastal districts should develop
awareness of higher magnitude as these areas are more vulnerable to sea level rise risks and prone
to sudden weather hazards like storm, typhoon, inundation, submergence, flood etc. with extremely
serious aberrations to life and impacts on surroundings. Therefore, conservation in situ will
eventually emerge from the grass root level to identify some of the adaptable measures.


Approach & methodology.

A series of lectures and demonstrations on the 1) Trend in climate change, 2) Impact and
consequences, 3) Urgent adoption of appropriate life style to help prevent the pace of global
warming, 4) Locally made appliances on water sanitation and other renewable energy sources and
their application will be organized, 5) Impact of the predicted sea level rise to cities and coastal
agriculture, 6) Role of transport in climate change, 7) Growth of population and its impact on
Environment, 9) Environmental problems due to deforestation and 10) Policy and legislation on
climate change

Saving biodiversity - Saving life

Following are some conservation actions that we can take up:

 Plant trees. Grow native species of plants (trees, shrubs and climber) where
possible, this would attract local wildlife such as birds, butterflies and insects.
 Grow local vegetables in the school garden that are not usually available in the
markets. This would allow help conserve them for generations to come.
 Initiate, organize and participate in responsible citizen action against existing
or proposed activities that harm or are likely to harm local biodiversity.
 Make a list of different kinds of trees in the campus or locality. For each one
find out the names, uses, flowering season, animals and birds that depends on
it. Present this information in an interesting way, and put it up by the tree.
Many people will stop by to read this information and know more about the
 Curb our greed for products made out of animal parts like skin, fur, ivory,
bones, nails, etc., to discourage wildlife traders and poachers, and spare the
lives of the remaining animals.
 Adopt vegetarianism which would require fewer animals to be fattened for
slaughtering and more plants to be grown for food.
 Avoid using insecticides, pesticides and inorganic fertilizers and try to use
natural plant- based substitutes wherever possible. Paper and cloth should
replace non-biodegradable plastic and polyester which damage the ecosystem.
 Make children aware of their surroundings and the need for biodiversity.
 Promote bio-farming which is less intensive and environmental-friendly.
 Make use of sustainable technologies like smokeless chulhas, ground water
recharging unit, wind energy, solar power, etc.
 Set up ‘Community Sanctuaries’ for free ranging animals, migratory birds and
endemic species. Establish voluntary ‘Village Reserves’ for plants and animals.
 Assist National level Bodies in recording and preserving rare and endemic species
 Create ‘Biodiversity Registers’ in communities, schools, villages
 Understanding fish fauna of local ponds, cow varieties, dog diversities and encouraging
feeding habits of birds
 Collection of photographs of rare flowering species to enable maintain a herbarium.
 Exposure to artificial inseminations for propagation of cow and other important breeds (ex
 Promotion of consciousness in connection with traditional knowledge base of ethical
biodiversity (in situ)
 Identification tool for easy documentation at school levels
 Knowledge dissemination related to Similipal Reserve Forest, Bhitarkanika, Chilika, Chandaka
and Nandankanan Sanctuary of Odisha
Organization of work elements.
Lectures, demonstrations and quizzes: Eminent resource persons will be invited to give
deliberations, participate in interactions and know how on remedial measures more particularly
basing on principles of natural conservation such as in situ and ex situ concepts.

Before organisation of lecture, necessary permission will be obtained from the concerned District
Education Officer(DEO)/Headmasters/Principals of the School and Colleges. As per their
convinency, dates will be fixed.
