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.
