Cabral assures fresh CZMP in consultation with stakeholders

Environment Minister Nilesh Cabral on Tuesday said that his department will prepare a fresh Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP) 2011 for the entire state of Goa. “My department will prepare our own plan for Goa by consulting all the stakeholders including the local bodies. The plan will basically serve as the base plan that will be given to the National Centre for Sustainable Coastal Management (NCSCM). We will ask the NCSCM to make the necessary changes in their draft plan and incorporate our requirements by referring to the plan that we are going to prepare,” said Cabral in the state legislative assembly.
He said that the need for preparing a fresh plan is a compulsion for the government, as CZMP maps of 1991 are not available with the government for comparison with 2011 draft CZMP plan.
He said scientists, Goa State Pollution Control Board and other experts will be roped in for the preparation of the new plan. “All the suggestions received from the elected representatives and consultations at taluka level will be considered after which we will go to the village panchayats to have a Power point presentation before finalising it,” he assured. Cabral expressed fear that if the state does not meet the deadline of August 30, 2019, the Nation Green Tribunal (NGT) may consider the ‘erroneous plan’ prepared by NCSCM as final.
