  • 2015•10•14     Bengaluru     This Week Bangalore

    Excerpt from an article in This Week Bangalore:

    The agencies that have a peer-to-peer exchange approach at the local level, actively engaging communities to synergize efforts, are the UNDP Equator Initiative, the Foundation for Revitalization of Local Health Traditions (FRLHT), COMPAS as well as the United Nations University-Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS). All these organisations are partners of the Biodiversity and Community Health (BaCH) Initiative, which is actively working towards linking biodiversity conservation, revitalising traditional knowledge and medicinal practices with creating sustainable livelihood opportunities to ultimately improve the wellbeing of local communities.
