In a brainstorming session on Natural Resource Management and Rural Bio-entrepreneurship, organised by Institute of Bioresources and Sustainable Development (IBSD), a National Institute of Department of Biotechnology, Govt of India, various experts and local stakeholders held open discussions on identifying the challenges and opportunities in Natural Resource Management and Rural Bio-entrepreneurship.

While inaugurating the workshop that was held at the Imphal Campus of IBSD, Y. Khemchand Singh, Speaker of Manipur Legislative Assembly, lauded this initiative of IBSD and promised his support for bringing together all stakeholders for convergence of actions and implementation.

Prof Dinabandhu Sahoo, Director IBSD, expressed the urgent need to reverse urban migration through such interventions aimed at promoting Rural Bio-entrepreneurship by developing bio-based industries in rural areas that would not only double farmers’ income but also generate jobs and livelihoods for the unemployed youth. The action plan document is being developed under the chairmanship of Dr A.K. Singh, Secretary, National Academy of Agricultural Sciences (NAAS), said Sahoo. Other experts who also participated in the deliberations include Dr Ajay Parida, Director ILS; Dr U.K. Behera, Dean CAU; Dr Umesh Kohli, Director IHT; Dr DD Haokip, APCCF, Govt of Manipur; Th.
