The aim of the webinar was to identify the threat or the challenges faced by the resources due to over-extraction of medicinal plants and the lack of recognition of traditional knowledge. The speakers also discussed the successful ways of conservation of such resources by each individual and the measures taken by our government in this aspect.

The webinar was facilitated by the eminent speakers from various sectors like researchers, academicians and policymakers who are experts on Medicinal plants and its conservation.

The list of faculty includes:

  • Dr. JLN Sastry, CEO, National Medicinal Plant Board, Government of India,
  • Dr. J V Sharma, Director, Land Resources Division, TERI,

B.   Quiz Competition on Environment, Biodiversity, Renewable Energy and Climate Change

Virtual quiz competition for students of class 6 to 10 was organized on 5th June 2020 using Zoom as a virtual interface. The program started with addresses by Ms. Pallavi Shukla, Program Officer, TERI ENVIS and followed by Quiz introduction by Dr. Shantanu Ganguly, Fellow and Programme Manager, TERI. The quiz was conducted by Ms. Pooja Sehbag on various single choice questions on environment, biodiversity, climate change, and renewable energy. This quiz aimed at bringing awareness amongst school students about the environment, biodiversity, climate change, and renewable energy. The students as a result are expected to have a better idea of how well they know the Mother Nature and its creatures, hopefully motivating them to study more and helping them allocate their study time effectively by focusing on the information that still needs more practice.

About 22 students participated in this competition in 5 different groups. Questions were asked from these groups in one by one manner. When a question was broadcasted to one group, all participants from that group were allowed to answer and accordingly the marks were allotted individually to each student. Although the number of students who could participate in the Quiz was limited, there was no limitation on the number of students to participate as the audience. In the end, some questions were also broadcasted for the audience.

Four winners were announced at the end of the Quiz competition. Certificates of merit and certificates of participation were then distributed to the winners and the participants respectively. The winners will also be given prizes after relaxation in the COVID-19 lockdown. 

C.   Compendium of Biodiversity Conservation: Case studies in India

On the eve of World Environment Day, 2020, TERI ENVIS RP also released a compendium on Biodiversity Conservation: Case Studies in India. This compendium brings out the best practices at the state- and local-level in biodiversity conservation in India. The compendium has been designed as a tool to share successful models of conservation of flora, fauna and marine biodiversity that may be easily replicated or to provide ideas that may be adapted for implementation in several other places. Each case study includes the key programme elements, problems and issues are identified, the processes and appropriate steps taken to address these problems, probable benefits, and examples of successful implementation. It is available on the TERI ENVIS website.
