Innovations: Technology, Governance, Globalization
In Gupta's view, India has a natural wealth of biodiversity, thanks to variations in its climates and soil conditions and its geographical features, including rain forests, arid lands, and mountains. Yet harsh conditions have done as much to induce individual creativity and innovation as to limit them. Few mechanisms exist for documenting indigenous innovation.
Gupta explains how, rather than looking at inhabitants of poor regions collectively as a sink for aid and advice, the Honey Bee Network recognizes their contributions formally as a source of inventions and innovations.
