FLORA, FAUNA AND CARRYING CAPACITY ASPECT OF SSP

A large number of studies on this aspect had already been carried out and completed by all three party-States. After review of the studies by the committee of experts convened by NCA, the main emphasis was laid on conservation of endangered species, provision of migratory corridors and improving the carrying capacity of the surrounding areas. An action Plan on development of Shoolpaneshwar sanctuary was completed by GOG. Massive afforestation and soil conservation works were carried out under catchment area treatment programme and compensatory afforestation schemes of the State Govts.
