About Jharkhand Biodiversity Board (JBB):
The Biological Diversity Act, 2002 (Central Act 18 of 2003) envisages to provide for conservation of biological diversity of the country, sustainable use of its components, fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of the use of biological resources and generation and dissemination of knowledge thereof. The Act has been put forth as the country’s response to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in 1992.
India is the first country to have an Act of this kind, consequent upon which the National Biodiversity Authority (NBA) has been set up in the year 2004. The National Biodiversity Authority and State Biodiversity Boards have the charter of acquisition of data and information pertaining to biological resources, reposition (storage and retrieval) of such information, generation of a knowledge base and dissemination of the knowledge for the benefit of citizenry. In this sense, the Act is different from most other legislations and therefore, has to adopt an unbeaten path.
