Preliminary budget of the initial project:
The accurate budget figures for the starting project will have to be adjusted and detailed according to the rules and possibilities based on the financing source, and the actual volume of planned work and staff available. Detailed finalisation of the budget may involve an upward or downward change by an order in the costs.
Justification of the budget:
The main objectives of the project:
The key objective of the three-year project is to establish a basic collection – gene bank of the cultivated crops used by the Indian communities in the Caura River Valley. The gene bank is being established as an Emergency Indian Crop Germplasm Collection (EICGC) to take care of the current unique repertory of Indian cultivated crops, which constitute an integral part of the cultural tradition of the natural Indian communities. This tradition is being increasingly undermined by advanced countries’ expanding economic activities. It is therefore a moral obligation of the advanced countries to provide protection of the culture, which is essential for saving such cultural and biological wealth. Once built, the EICGC bank will serve not only for preserving and documenting part of the cultural heritage, but also as a source of initial plant material to re-install these crops whenever needed (in-vitro technology of explants and the technology of cultivated plants genome manipulation). With a similar philosophy and objective in mind, scientific attention will also be paid to the Indian “green medicine” plants, i.e. plants used by Indian shamans for treating the local people.
