The India Biodiversity Portal is a repository of information designed to harness and disseminate collective intelligence on the biodiversity of the Indian subcontinent.

This portal aims to provide information on biodiversity in India. It is designed to harness collective knowledge, seek voluntary participation of users and establish a participatory platform for content generation, verification and usage. The Portal aims to facilitate and enable widespread participation by all citizens in contributing and accessing information on Indian biodiversity, that benefits science and society, contributes to a sustainable future; and guides the development and use of this Portal.

The IBP intends to aggregate biodiversity information for public good, by leveraging Web and providing easy open access to this wealth of information. The portal intends to mobilize a collaborative community that will build high-quality map-based multimedia information on India's biodiversity.
