Biodiversity Conservation : DAINET

The intensifying conflict between conservation priorities on the one hand and the needs of the human population on the other, a conflict which militates against the concept of sustainable development for supporting a growing population with increasing democratic expectations of a better life.

The bare facts of the conservation problem in India are that she supports 15% of the world’s population and 14% of its livestock on 2% of its land. India also is host to 45000 plant and 65000 animal species spread over 25 biogeographic zones. In protecting the country’s genetic biodiversity in the face of colossal human pressure, there is a deep conflict of interest, most clearly illustrated in the protected areas of India.

The key components of DAINET Programme are, Eco-development, Corridor Management and Eco-tourism
  • Eco-development

    The ecodevelopment component lays an emphasis on participation of local communities, living within or in the periphery of the PA, in PA conservation. Ecodevelopment Planning for a single or cluster of Pas is based on the potential of the natural resource base, socio-economic and infrastructural needs of the local communities and the capacity of local institutions to participate in conservation activities.
  • Corridor Management

    The programme also examined the possibilities of creating geographical networks of PAs. These networks would be able to provide corridors for migratory species, prevent isolation of gene pools and allow for viable habitats. The group had been attempting to integrate landuse planning for corridor management systems through Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System applications
  • Eco-tourism

    This component assesses the potential for ecotourism within PAs as a source of revenue to conserve and maintain the PA. Pressure on the PA is also reduced by income generating opportunities made available to the local communities.

It’s 11:00 in the morning and your energy is waning. Minutes seem to tick by like hours and your mind feels foggy. You’ve still got six more hours to look alert and act productive and get over anxiety drug, so how do you cope with the afternoon blahs? Follow these six tips!

1. If you have a job that involves sitting at a desk all day or staring at a computer screen, take five minutes to stand up or lean back, close your eyes and stretch, especially in your shoulder and leg areas. Being seated all the time can make your whole body feel stiff and sleepy. A good stretch session helps limber up your body and gets the blood flowing again.

2. Avoid the tempting lure of caffeine or sugar-laden foods such as coffee, tea or chocolate. Caffeine may perk up your energy levels temporarily, but it also has a bad habit of leaving you sluggish after the effect has worn off. Instead, choose whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables to give your body the fuel it really wants! Eating healthier will boost your mood, elevate your alertness, change anxiety drug and make you feel better all day long.

3. Along with healthier foods, take a quick 10-15 minute walk during your lunch break. Just a few minutes will give you a burst of energy that refreshes you and makes you feel more alert – while burning off your lunch calories in the process!

4. Sometimes, afternoon slumps can be your body’s way of telling you that it needs something. You may be feeling tired if your blood sugar is low (which happens especially after the effect of those caffeine and high sugar foods has worn off!). Packing a low calorie snack like graham crackers, granola, fruit or vegetable slices can give your body a boost and keep you from feeling hungry in the late afternoon and caving in to the urge to devour the entire contents of the vending machine after work!

5. Drowsiness is often a sign that you’re not getting enough water. Drinking more water throughout the day not only helps keep you awake, but also keeps you from feeling those hunger pangs that inevitably creep up in mid-morning. Taking a large sports bottle that you can drink from throughout the day is a great way to get your recommended eight glasses a day as well!

6. If afternoon fatigue is a recurring problem, it may be a side effect of medications you are taking. Allergy pills are well known culprits, as are some blood pressure and anxiety/depression medicines. Don’t try to circumvent these effects with caffeine, otherwise you’ll overload your body with stimulants while it’s already trying to deal with drowsiness, and you’ll feel mentally and physically exhausted. Instead, try a short 15-20 minute catnap. You’ll be surprised how refresh you’ll feel when you wake up! (Don’t try this at work though – I know it’s tempting!)

If you follow these tips on a regular basis, you’ll not only make it through the afternoon blahs, but you’ll also feel better physically and mentally, sleep better at night, and wake up rejuvenated and re-energized the next morning. Make it a GREAT day! anxiety drug
