If we waste or destroy our natural resources they might be lost forever. It could be the felling of trees, or polluting the rivers these changes cannot be undone easily. And a heavy price is to be paid for being reckless with nature in terms of public health and prosperity.
Over the years, India has taken several measures to control pollution, maintain ecological balance, increase forest area, and keep its rivers clean. However, a lot needs to be done before we can relax and say that we have conserved our country for our children. Governments over the years have taken several steps to conserve the environment. The enactment of the Compensatory Afforestation Act, 2016 is aimed at ending adhocism. It gives money to the states for conservation, protection, improvement, and expansion of forest and wildlife resources.
According to the government, the availability of these funds will not only help the states and local communities to ensure better management of their forest resources but will also result in the creation of more than 15 Crore man-days of direct employment. A major part of these amounts will be used to restock and improve the quality of degraded forests, which constitutes more than 40% of the total forest cover of the country.
Water Resources is another important natural resource and must be conserved. The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) monitors the water quality of rivers in the country on a regular basis. Various rivers have been identified under the program of the National River Conservation Plan (NRCP) and the National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA) for implementation of projects on cost-sharing basis between central and state governments.
In order to increase the forest and tree cover and improve the quality of existing forest lands, afforestation is being taken up under various centrally sponsored schemes such as NAP, Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS), Integrated Watershed Management Program (IWMP), National Bamboo Mission (NBM) and under Compensatory Afforestation Fund Management and Planning Authority (CAMPA) among others.
Conversion of India’s vehicles to electrical vehicles has a potential to save fossil fuels worth about $100 billion annually, which in turn would save the country precious foreign exchange, prevent the dependence on imported petroleum products and reduce the pollution in cities by 80%-90%.
Air pollution has increasingly become a serious concern. The impact of air pollution is not limited to health, but it gets extended to agriculture and general well-being of human, floral and faunal population. The government has formulated National Clean Air Program (NCAP) as a long-term, time bound national level strategy to tackle the increasing air pollution problem across the country in a comprehensive manner at a total tentative cost of around `637 crore. The overall objective of the NCAP is comprehensive management plan for prevention, control and abatement of air pollution besides augmenting the air quality-monitoring network across the country.
