BioGov on CBD Website

The CBD cites the BIOGOV portal on its website as follows (Read here):

Launch of the BioGov: Biodiversity Governance in India portal

The first editorial – Two words of Grace for BioGov – explains the objectives and aims of this endeavor.

Congratulations to Dr M. K. Sarkar, whose life time work on biodiversity conservation made a foundation of this entire work.

It is notable that the first editorial, ‘Two words of Grace for BioGov’ was also cited by CDB on its website.
