FAA 118/119 ANNEX Most of India’s biodiversity conservation issues are inextricably linked to sustainable development and poverty-alleviation challenges. Actions necessary to conserve India’s biological diversity and tropical forest resources include: • increasing knowledge and protection of biodiversity and forests outside the protected areas network; • encouraging sustainable use of fuelwood, fodder, and forest resources; • preventing overgrazing by livestock; • controlling and mitigating agricultural, industrial, and urban pollution; • reducing over-harvesting of medicinal plants for commercial markets; • controlling impacts caused by mining, energy production, and urbanization; • reducing levels of poaching and trade in endangered species products; and • integrating a gender perspective into management of these resources....
