Breathtaking or Heartbreaking Wetlands

This documentary BREATHTAKING OR HEARTBREAKING WETLANDS reviews ecological management of fragile wetland ecosystems, identifies the institutional vacuum and suggests priority areas, where immediate attention is required in order to formulate better conservation strategies for these productive eco-systems.

Management of wetlands in India has received inadequate attention in the national water sector agenda. As a result, many of the wetlands are subject to anthropogenic pressures, including land use changes in the catchment areas, pollution from industry and households, encroachments, tourism and over exploitation of their natural resources.
