The Chhattisgarh Medicinal Board, supported by the Ministry of Environment and Forests and UNDP, has initiated a project, funded by the Global Environment Facility, to promote long-term conservation and sustainable use of medicinal plants. The video, shot on 12.12.12, as part of the Global One Day on Earth project, demonstrates the impact of effective forest management policies and practices such as earmarking of areas for growth and conservation of medicinal plants, training on collecting, processing and marketing medicinal plants and capacity development of forest officials. These activities have generated employment and increased the value of medicinal plants in Dhamtari, located in biodiversity-rich Chhattisgarh.
