About Global Biodiversity Conservation Centre

    G.B.C.C. dedicated to generating and applying the best available knowledge to stimulate the Biodiversity, raise farmers income and protect the environment.

     The centre’s vision is a rural transformation in the developing world as small holder households strategically increase their use of trees in agricultural land scapes to improve their food security, nutrition, income, health, shelter, energy resources and environmental sustainability.

     The centre mission is to integrate science – based knowledge about the diverse role that tree play in agriculture land scapes and use its research to advance policies and practices that benefit the poor and the environment.

G.B.C.C. Maximizing farm productivity of trees and agro forestry system.

     Improving tree product marketing and extensions for small holders. Improve the ability of farmers, ecosystem and government to cope with climatic change. Developing policies and incentive for multi functional land scapes with tree that provide environmental service by focusing on these areas, the centre will be better positioned to tackle the challanges of poverty, food security and environmental de gradation and loss of Biodiversity.

Where We Work :

     We work mainly in bundelkhand region of U.P., India, share the problem of poverty, hunger and environmental degradation to varying degree and offer opportunity for Biodiversity conservation.

Our People :

     The Board of trustees oversees the work of G.B.C.C. Members of the board ensure that the centre has a clear approach to achieving its mission and that an appropriate management structure and central system are in place. The G.B.C.C. senior leadership team is responsible for implementing the centre 2011 strategy and day to-day Operation of the centre Senior scientists at the G.B.C.C. come from an array of discipline including environment and water management, soil science, Agronomy, medicinal science, forestry, social science. Their high level skills and expertise ensure that the centre has the capacity to conduct quality research on the diverse role of trees in Agricultural land scapes and to use this research to advance policies and practices that benefit the poor and the environment.

G.B.C.C. Research :

*Forest/Biodiversity conservation

*Afforestation

*On farm productivity

*Marketing and extension

*Land health

*Climate change

*Environmental service

     G.B.C.C. is uniquely positioned to address global challanges to improve the livelihood at poor small holders and improve the sustainability and productivity of agriculture landscape.

     G.B.C.C. is broadening the range and diversity of trees maximizing the productivity of Biodiversity through improved germplasm and enhanced supply of high quality trees, shrub, herb, fodder research.

*Improving the income of poor house holds by facilitating their access to market.

*To balance improved productivity with the sustainable management of natural resources for example stabilizing forest margin in Bundelkhand region of U.P.

*Managing trees in agricultural land scapes to ensure the health of river and ground water system.

Centre for Biodiversity Informatics :

     The centre for Biodiversity informatics at the G.B.C.C. seeks to provide innovative technology solutions to the global community of lfie science research scholars in order to mobilize, intergrate and repartiate data about the world’s Biodiversity.

     Biodiversity informatics is defined as the creation, integration, analysis and understanding of information regarding biological diversity, currently efforts are under way to make the vast, decentralized resources of global Biodiversity information available in digital form.

Biodiversity informatics is a relatively young field with the term being coined in 1992.

     Biodiversity informatics is a term generaly used in the broad sense to apply to computerized handling of any Biodiversity information. The broader term at Bioitnermatics is other used to describe the computerized handling of data in the specialized area of molecular biology.

Intellectual Property of G.B.C.C. :

     The pursuit of our mission require generating data and knowledge product of many types including journals, books, paper and brief data base, maps, models, software and data archives, e-books, all of these are essentially international public goods. They also represent intellectual property that has to be manage and disseminated if they are to lead change in the lives of the rural poor. This document sets out the guiding principles we have adopted.

Genetic Resources of G.B.C.C. :

     The G.B.C.C. Scientists are working with germplasm from a wide range of herbs, shrubs, trees species, the majority of which are indigenous. In addition to the centre also maintains a significant collection of germplasm material, which is managed through its genetic resources unit. Molecular markers are used to determine patterns to genetic diversity of herb, shrub trees species.

History :

     Establishment of G.B.C.C. in 2011 to promote Biodiversity conservation, Research and Development. G.B.C.C. Operates under the authority of a legal constituted society “BALVIR” (Biodiversity and land reclaments on versatile institute for research) Society Registered under Act 21 of 1860.

Facilities :

     Proper facilities are what make all of G.B.C.C. programme possible. They provide not only office space but also laboratories for research, classrooms for education programme and accommodation for visiting scientist and students. They house the library and herbarium collection and plants in the early stage of propagation.

     In short, they are essential to everything that happens at the G.B.C.C. The range of facilities at each location varies. The following is a brief overview.
