Approaches and policy’s for medicinal plants conservation

Dr. IV Srinivasa Reddy and Dr. P Neelima
Medicinal plant conservation is challenging, since the taxa occur during a wide selection of habitats and geographic regions. Their conservation threats and supreme use are diverse and users aren't only local rural communities but also distant urban citizens. Ex situ conservation remains the most remit and area of experience of botanic gardens. In situ conservation is the preferable methodology, since ex situ conservation tends to take place outside the range state of the target species. The preservation of species in place offers all the benefits of allowing survival to act, which can't be recreated ex situ. A policy trend positively linking biodiversity conservation by CBD, WTO,TRIPS, UNCTAD Bio Trade Initiative, MEA, Doha Declaration, GSPC,WHO, CITES with human development is gaining momentum and people’s access rights to natural resources necessary for his or her survival have improved with policy provisions.. In India a unique and pioneering program for conservation of wild medicinal plants has been initiated and it has involved establishment of a network of MPCA focused on conservation of prioritized wild medicinal plants. Seed banking was a vital backup to other conservation methodologies, and one that should be supported and expanded for medicinal plants.
