A total of 50 delegates/officers representing state forest departments of Uttarakhand, Haryana, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh and Scientists of FRI participated in the workshop. FRI executed a PILOT project on Forest Genetic Resource Characterization and Conservation of Uttarakhand sponsored by the National-CAMPA authority of Ministry of Environment Forests and Climate Change. The salient outcomes of the project were discussed with officials of the Uttarakhand Forest Department. In the workshop, the Scientists of FRI shared information on the assessment of forest genetic resources of Uttarakhand through identification, documentation in the form of digital platform, eco-distribution mapping, genetic diversity and bio-chemical characterization, disease survey, development of propagation techniques and finally in situ and ex situ germplasm conservation approaches. The major aim for conducting the workshop was to share the knowledge base of FGRs for developing short term and long-term conservation plans on forestry species. The new technologies were discussed to develop genetically differentiated germplasm in native range of Himalayan ecosystem and also assessed the gaps that have been identified for the development and transfer of technology.
