Biodiversity Management

Design, Implement and Evaluates programmes and policies for the protection, conservation and management of wildlife and ecosystems to protect the environment and the communities that depend on it.



Competency Area

Natural Resource Management


Demonstrates knowledge of various aspects of biodiversity management

Understands technical components of biodiversity management such as ecologically sensitive areas (ESAs), habitat and wildlife management and conservation

Identifies human impacts (e.g. recreational pressure, pollution) on habitat and wildlife ecosystems

Demonstrates knowledge of national and international legal provisions such as Biological Diversity Act, 2002 and the Convention on Biological Diversity

Describes various technology based tools that are used for the management of coastal areas such as GIS, statistical software, surveillance technology

Contributes to designing biodiversity management programs

Identify stakeholders that need to be included in various biodiversity plans

Contributes to designing mechanisms for ecological restoration of degraded forest areas, wetlands etc. through systematic planning and implementation, in a cost effective manner

Document the afforestation, tree planting, ecological restoration and eco-development, wildlife conservation program updates (like Project Elephant, Action Plan for forests )

Research need analysis, best practices, developments and technologies for the regeneration and development of degraded ecosystems

Demonstrate proficiency in tools and technology required to carry out a bio-diversity management program design

Coordinates biodiversity management programs

Coordinates and monitors the progress of afforestation, tree planting, ecological restoration and eco-development, wildlife conservation programs (like Project Elephant)

Support inter-ministerial coordination and facilitate knowledge sharing by bringing diverse stakeholder groups together

Support the development of technical design for environment protection (like shock absorber for the specialized ecosystem (PAs), creation of transition zones between high protection zone to lower protection zone)

Reviews and guides research and communication strategies and findings

Determines the impact of various biodiversity plans and hazards on communities

Designs and implements biodiversity management programs

Designs and implements habitat/species management, mitigation, compensation and/or enhancement plans or projects

Designs programs that account for community needs

Disseminate research finding to promote afforestation and eco-development with the assistance of voluntary agencies, non-government organisations, Panchayati Raj institutions and others and promote participatory and sustainable management of degradation of ecosystems

Leads inter-ministerial coordination and facilitate knowledge sharing

Builds scientific and technical capacity of the team

Integrates technology and tools into the project design

Evaluates biodiversity management programs

Evaluates afforestation, tree planting, ecological restoration and eco-development, wildlife conservation programs (like Project Elephant)

Advances community participation in biodiversity management programmes

Contributes to policy, regulatory and legal matters for facilitating processes and analysis for evolution of policy and law for conservation of biodiversity and Protected Area network.

Contributes to studies that are designed to evaluate the impact of biodiversity management programs

Contributes to technological solutions which can be deployed to improve the effectiveness of coastal management
