The Government of India launched a Global Environment Facility- (GEF) assisted project, namely Green–Ag: Transforming Indian agriculture for global environment benefits and the conservation of critical biodiversity and forest landscapes in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in high-conservation-value landscapes of five states, namely Madhya Pradesh (Chambal landscape), Mizoram (Dampa landscape), Odisha (Similipal landscape), Rajasthan (Desert National Park landscape) and Uttarakhand (Corbett-Rajaji landscape) in September 2018.

The project seeks to mainstream biodiversity, climate change and sustainable land management objectives and practices into Indian agriculture. The overall objective of the project is to catalyse the transformative change of India’s agricultural sector to support achievement of national and global environmental benefits and conservation of critical biodiversity and forest landscapes.

The project will support harmonisation between India’s agricultural and environmental sector priorities and investments, so that the achievement of national and global environmental benefits can be fully realised without compromising India’s ability to strengthen rural livelihoods and meet its food and nutrition security.

This information was given by Parshottam Rupala, minister of state for agriculture and farmers’ welfare.
