Biodiversity is life that sustains this planet and India ranks as amongst the 12- mega biodiversity countries worldwide. Endowed with 2.5% of land region, India is already home for 7.8% of the global recorded species. India has abundant quantity of traditional and indigenous knowledge, coded as well as informal.
Conserving these valuable resources will help to preserve our biodiversity and traditional knowledge. Uttar Pradesh also boasts of floral diversity with 1017 genera and 2932 plant species. Its faunal diversity includes 41 species of 11 genera under 6 families such as protozoa, nematodes, insecta, freshwater Mollusca and vertebrates. The total percentage of animal species in UP with respect to India was 2.76.
The National Biodiversity Authority (NBA), State Biodiversity Boards (SBB) and Biodiversity Management Committees (BMC) were all set up under the Biological Diversity Act at the level of Panchayats, Municipalities and City Corporations to further conservation, sustainable utilization and equitable distribution of benefits of biodiversity resources of India, comprising habitats, cultivars, besides domesticated stocks and breeds of animals and micro-organisms.
Maintaining such documentation for the state of Uttar Pradesh for its entire villages by the UP State Biodiversity Board through its E-PBRs listing its flora, fauna and animal diversity was a pressing need for the Board. The Board approached Preview Technologies, a Business Process Management and Enterprise Mobility Solutions Company with a proven track record of 8 years in deploying business solutions. Their expertise in mobile device management and cloud services helped in evolving data compilation strategies.
