The problem and study of the biological diversity of the unique ecosystems of the Park requires resources and support. Towards that end the Biodiversity Conservation Society (BiodCS) for the Great Himalayan National Park was formed through which funds can be raised from various sources.
Biodiversity Conservation Society (BiodCS)
The Biodiversity Conservation Society (BiodCS) has the overall responsibility for the management of the Great Himalayan National Park. The BiodCS provides fund advances, empowerment, flexible administrative procedures, and governing board structure. These help provide continuity of Park funding across fiscal years, eliminates most bureaucratic delays, renders managerial autonomy at the Park level, and ensure the flexibility required for a process-oriented approach. The Director, Great Himalayan National Park, who is the member-secretary of the Governing Board of the BiodCS, is responsible for the management, along with assumption of responsibility and accountability for production of outputs, achievement of the Park’s objective and for the use of the Park management funds.
The BiodCS honors and expands the legacy of private philanthropy that will help sustain the Park. Whether it is small donations from school children or larger contributions from individuals or corporations, the BiodCS allows the GHNP management to fund community development programs, as well as education, science, and interpretation programs for the Park.
The Director, Great Himalayan National Park is member-secretary of this governing body and does all the works concerning management, financial and administrative works duly approved by the governing body.
