Preparation of People’s Biodiversity Register (PBR):

One of the mandates of the Biodiversity Board is to prepare Peoples’ Biodiversity Registers (PBR) involving the local communities. The register shall contain comprehensive information on availability and knowledge of local biological resources, their medicinal or any other use or any other traditional knowledge associated with them. PBR is not simply a register with names of species and their distribution in a given area but it is a comprehensive data base recording peoples’ traditional knowledge and insight of the status, uses, history, ongoing changes and forces driving these changes on the biological diversity resources of their own localities. This will also provide information on the current utilization patterns of biodiversity, its economic benefits to the local communities. The registers form a baseline data for future management strategies required for the sustainable utilization of biodiversity in a decentralized manner. Further, it helps equitable sharing of benefits arising out of commercial utilization of biodiversity resources and knowledge on their uses. The Biodiversity Register offers conservation, protection of IPR and the traditional knowledge.

The Assam State Biodiversity Board released an amount of Rs. 50,000/-per Biodiversity Management Committee (BMC) for initiating the PBR works for 133 Biodiversity Management Committees (BMC)s.
