Featured Presentation: The performance of regulatory institutions set up for coastal governance in India - Findings and lessons from a recent study

Coastal Zone Management Authorities are the primary institution set up for coastal governance in India. Set up following a Supreme Court order in 1996 on a case regarding coastal degradation, these bodies have been actively reshaping the coast through their decisions to locate ports, industry and housing along the coastline. This study is the first attempt to document the practice of coastal governance by CZMAs, their performance and the challenges they face. The findings of the study would be useful not only to coastal communities and coastal area managers/officers but to environmental policy makers, regulators, environmental activists and students.

Presenter: @meenakshikapoor, Program Manager, CPR-Namati Environment Justice Program, India.
