DMPQ-Throw light on the significance of National Mission on Biodiversity and human well being for saving Biodiversity and securing Earth’s Future.

Globally, there has been a 7% loss of intact forests since 2000, and recent assessments indicate that over a million species might be lost forever during the next several decades. Further, climate change and the ongoing pandemic will put additional stresses on our natural ecosystems.

India is not an exception to these trends. Today, it is becoming clear that repairing our dysfunctional relationship with nature is one of the ways to mitigate climate change and curtail future outbreaks of infectious diseases that can bring unimaginable misery. Thus, preserving biodiversity is directly relevant to the social, economic, and environmental well-being. In this context, the National Mission on Biodiversity and Human Well-Being (NMBHWB) is a step in the right direction.

Significance of India’s Biodiversity

Biodiversity Hotspot

India is home to nearly 8% of global biodiversity on just 2.3% of global land area, and contains sections of four of the 36 global biodiversity hotspots.

Protection From Natural Disasters

The varied ecosystems across land, rivers, and oceans, feed our people, enhance public health security, and shield us from environmental disasters.

Spiritual Enrichment

Our biodiversity also serves as a perpetual source of spiritual enrichment, intimately linked to our physical and mental well-being.

National Mission on Biodiversity and Human well being (NMBHWB)

  • In 2018, the Prime Minister’s Science, Technology and Innovation Advisory Council (PM-STIAC) in consultation with the Ministry of Environment, Forest, and Climate Change and other Ministries approved an ambitious National Mission on Biodiversity and Human Well-Being.
  • The Mission proposes a national effort that aims to transform biodiversity science by linking it to the peoples’ economic prosperity.
  • Under this Mission, research institutions, government, and non-government organizations will work together to catalogue, map, assess, monitor, and use our vast but declining natural assets sustainably.
