Education and Awareness

The Centre has a documentation unit which holds all the information generated on the germplasm held. In addition, the Centre also manages the National Information Sharing Mechanism (NISM) which captures information on activities that relate to PGRFA being undertaken in the country by different stakeholders and makes it publicly available on the web. The Centre also offers educational tours to the Botanic Gardens and the genebank to a wide audience including farmers and students.

 

Training is also offered to people of all-age groups and professions in the basic concepts of conservation and utilisation of resources; principles of collecting germplasm and its documentation; and in how to change attitude and perceptions towards the resources around the people.
