Policy: Policies From Central and State Governaments

This document aims to identify various State and Central Government Policies that can potentially be used for advocating the use of biochar as soil amendment. Policies on organic farming have been examined. Since biochar is useful both as a sustainable option for managing farm waste (which is otherwise burnt in many cases) and as a soil amendment, it can be incorporated into existing policies on organic farming. Policies have been examined to see how they can support different stages of biochar production and end-use such as:

  • Production of biochar
  • Research and development
  • Awareness and advocacy
  • Mitigating risks
  • Developing standards for biochar production


The IBBN Secretariat is hosted by the Revitalizing Rainfed Agriculture Network and Snehakunja trust, and supported by GIZ  – The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale.
