In response to the invitation by the Government of Pondicherry (now known as Puducherry) the Biovillage project was initiated in March 1991 in Pondicherry. In China, a similar programme “Qianxian Biovillage Model”
was initiated in five regions of the Hubei province of Huairou Country of Beijing, by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). CAS is a leading academic institution and comprehensive research and development centre in natural science, technological science and high-tech innovation in China. The Asian Development Bank provided the initial funding support to establish Biovillages in India and China.
