State government submits draft CZMP
PANJIM: The state government has finally presented the National Coastal Zone Management Authority (NCZMA) with the draft Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP) with five recommendations, including the lifting of port boundaries and structures in the final CZMP communication from 2011 for Goa.
The draft CZMP was presented last week by the Goa Coastal Zone Management Authority (GCZMA) after taking into account the contributions of the population during two district-level consultations held last year.
The GCZMA recommended the abolition of the port boundaries and tried not to present the structures in the final CZMP. She also called for the removal of the mangrove buffer zone in the land of Khazan, approval of development activities in the fishing districts, and the inclusion of all state government recommendations in the final 2011 CZMP communication for Goa.
The state government had used the services of the Chennai-based National Center for Sustainable Coastal Management (NCSCM), a central body in the preparation of the CZMP.
Goa is reported to be the last state to submit a draft CZMP to NCZMA for approval.
It should be remembered that the two public consultations held in both districts on March 7th last year were full of chaos and confusion, with participants calling for village-level consultations in preparation for the CZMP. The National Green Tribunal (NGT) later called on the Goa government to hold new consultations.
The NGT Principal Bench, New Delhi, had also rejected the Goa government’s plea to extend the deadline for CZMP preparation by six months.
After keeping the draft of the CZMP open for public proposals, the Ministry of Environment received more than 4,500 proposals and objections and other comments from various village pastors, NGOs, environmentalists, fishing communities and individuals.
