  • Earlier this year, in the March, the Indian ministry of environment, forests and climate change unveiled the draft environment impact assessment notification 2020 is to replace the earlier one.
  • The new draft allows for setting up of projects that violate rules & regulations and operate without an environment clearances ( Environmental clearancesto  are  given for the building of industries in an ecologically sensitive area).
  • By increasing the list of project categories exempted from public consultation, our freedom of speech is curbed and the voices of affected communities suppressed.
  • 3) Even if a project is setup illegally without an environmental clearance, the new EIA draft allows for it to be granted clearance after commencement.
  • The earlier permissible number of 20,000 sq.m projects for the building and construction sector has to now rocketed to 150,000 sq.m
  • Fragile Coasts and flood defenders like mangroves and shores will be opened up to exploitation for port & industry development, affecting more than 20,000 aquatic.  
  •  It dilutes the importance of an environment impact assessment report, which is a report explaining the effects of construction in and on biodiversity hotspots and flora-fauna
  • As you can see, the new draft is will prove to be disastrous for our forests and habitats and have a  huge impacts on Indian's biodiversity. It will be used as a gateway by mining and fossil fuel extraction companies to destroy pristine natural habitats without the proper clearances, and still get away with in it.
  • India has more than 1200 species of birds, and 500 species of an animals. Going forward with this draft could be a death sentence for our wildlife sanctuary, a lockdown on the voices of indigenous protectors and environmentalists, and a system which puts profits, over people and  to the planet.
  • With  this issues like water scarcity, climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution plaguing India like a virus, its time you choose our forests and wildlife. Its time India chooses its forests.
