Panel meets after 4 years, no major steps taken yet to protect wetlands [http://cmsenvis.cmsindia.org/resources/newspaper/details.asp?id=84099]
NEW DELHI: The Central Wetland Regulatory Authority(CWRA), the apex body overseeing conservation of wetlands met recently after a gap of four years. The meeting was organized for the first time after 2012, only after the National Green Tribunaldirected
the CWRA meet regularly and notify wetlands at the earliest so that their conservation can be facilitated. Interestingly, even in their fourth meeting the CWRA didn't notify any wetlands because the proposals sent by the states lack in information.
