Eastern Himalayan Naturenomics™ Forum 2018

Eastern Himalayan Naturenomics™ Forum 2018


The real decision makers and frontliners of biodiversity conservation are the people that share space with it - Our Communities. With increased local capacity, responsibility, and participation in the sustainable management of natural resources, communities are much better positioned to effectively preserve the natural environment and wildlife of their area.

To explore, innovate and discuss sustainable experiments to ensure longevity of our communities and our natural assets such as water, education, tourism etc., Balipara Foundation is pleased to present the Eastern Himalayan Naturenomics™ Forum 2018.
