  • Consultative Workshop Biodiversity Statistics of Bhutan held

    29 March 2019: One-day consultative workshop on Biodiversity Statistics of Bhutan was held in Thimphu. The workshop aimed at validating the species checklists and the number of species found in Bhutan till 2017 and 2018, and finalizing the information to be presented in the publication. The primary focus of the Biodiversity Statistics of Bhutan is to collate and create an accurate and reliable baseline of biodiversity statistics for the country. This publication is the first of its kind, to be developed through collaborative efforts from various institutions. By creating a platform for the collection and discussion of biodiversity data from stakeholders with wide-ranging expertise, this publication will bring together knowledge from various sources and aims to present a thorough introduction to the biodiversity in Bhutan.

    This report will present the number of species according to taxonomic groups, trends of new records and discoveries, as well as other information related to the biodiversity of Bhutan. It will also provide checklists according to taxonomic classifications. The checklists will be made available through an online consortium-based platform, the Bhutan Biodiversity Portal (www.biodiversity.bt).

  • National Training Workshop on Evolutionary Plant Breeding 11-18 February 2019

    A week-long training workshop on Evolutionary Plant Breeding for the National Project Stakeholders is underway at Gelephu. The on-farm conservation Project on Evolutionary Plant Breeding “Use of genetic diversity and Evolutionary Plant Breeding for enhanced farmer resilience to climate change, sustainable crop productivity, and nutrition under rain-fed conditions” is supported by IFAD through Biodiversity International. It is an International project coordinated by Bioversity International, Rome and will be implemented in six countries (Bhutan, Nepal, Iran, Uganda, Ethiopia and Jordan). The project will focus on the conservation and sustainable use of rice and bean on-farm diversity in the proposed project sites exploiting the concept of evolutionary plant breeding.

    The objectives of the training workshop are to enhance the capacity of the national project stakeholders on evolving concepts of evolutionary plant breeding, on-Farm crop genetic diversity assessment and seed systems, and social ecological assessment. The training workshop is organized by the National Biodiversity Centre, Serbithang, with technical support from the International Project Coordinating Unit, the Bioversity International, Rome. It is attended by the participants from the Regional Agriculture Research and Development Centres and the extension officials from the proposed project sites. The project will be implemented in 6 sites covering five Dzongkhags representing four agro-ecological zone. The project will identify climate resilient technologies for conservation, development and sustainable use of crop diversity.
