Biodiversity in coastal regions

Eight exhibitions in India

Exhibition

Coastal regions belong to the planet’s most productive ecosystems. In India they provide the livelihood for more than 20 million persons. However, due to the rapid economic growth and increase in population, these areas have come under growing pressure, leaving many places overexploited and polluted.

Thus, in the frame of an Indo-German cooperation, the project “Conservation and Sustainable Management of Coastal and Marine Protected Areas” has been initiated. Commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) supports the Indian government in preserving these ecosystems. The project aims to contribute the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in selected areas along the coast of India.

To this end, Archimedes realised eight indoor and outdoor exhibitions at different locations within in the country. Just recently the last site was inaugurated in Airoli. The exhibitions each take local animal and plant species as their subject and from now on support the local biodiversity and environmental education.
