Report of the High Level Committee to review Acts administered by Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change

Some of the major recommendations of the Committee:

  1. Economic incentives for increased community participation in farm and social forestry by way of promoting and proving statutory safeguards to ‘treelands’ as distinct from ‘forest’
  2. Making preparation of Wildlife Management plans mandatory and inserting a provision to this effect in the Wild Life Protection Act
  3. Creation of National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) at Central Level and State Environment Management Authority (SEMA) at the State level as full time processing/clearance/monitoring agencies
  4. Special treatment for linear projects, power/mining and strategic border projects; incorporation of noise pollution as an offence in Environmental Protection Act, etc.

The report is available on the website of Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change.
