The Tripura Biodiversity Board on 17 March 2015 launched a project to link conservation to economic concerns.
The project was launched by Principal Chief Conservator of Forest S Talukdar at the Pragnya Bhavan in Tripura.
The project will link conservation and sustainable utilisation of bio-resources with the livelihood and economic concerns of the owners through access benefit sharing.
The project aims to strengthen the implementation of the Biological Diversity Act, 2002 and Biological Diversity Rules, 2004. The project also aims to create awareness amongst the various stakeholders with respect to the real economic values of bio-resources.
