The International Conference on Creativity and Innovations at Grassroots (ICCIG) for sustainable natural resource management was organized by the Centre for Management in Agriculture, IIMA during Jan 11-­14, 1997. The Conference brought participants from forty countries together for four days at IIMA.   This Conference, in some sense, pooled insights from grassroots level creativity around the world. In some sense, it also helped in taking stock of the progress we have made in garnering global voice and visibility for creative urges grom the grassroots. There were discussions on the  various ways of respecting, recognising  and rewarding  creativity  and  at the  same time removing asymmetry in the rights and responsibilities of knowledge providers and utilizers.

The   Conference   was   sponsored   by   National   Bank   for   Agriculture   and   Rural   Development (NABARD)   and   co­sponsored   by   International   Society   for     Ecological   Economics   (ISEE), International Association for study of Common Properties (IASCP), SRISTI, Oxford Centre for Ethics, Environment and Society, FAO/FTPP, Gujarat Agro Industries Corporation (GAIC), Indian Council for Agricultural Research (ICAR), Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR),International Research Development Centre (IDRC) and Pew Conservation Scholar Award.
