Description

A PBR is a document that records status of local biodiversity, landscape, waterscape elements and relationships of various user-groups with these – essentially from a (local) people’s perspective. The preparation of a PBR for Chorao would entail the vigorous involvement of the local community members through the formation of a Biodiversity Management Committee (BMC), with support from the concerned government bodies and departments and technical expertise. The PBR is a database of traditional knowledge and intellectual property of the local rural community on biological resources.
