Appraising the Debate on Biodiversity Conservation in the Western Ghats

This paper was formulated at a much earlier date, and hence may not include some of the more recent debates regarding issues of governance and legal jurisdiction of the two reports which have come to light in the public domain. We are grateful to Geetanjoy Sahu, for bringing this to our attention and discussing with us at length the impact that a new governance model would have on existing regulations and laws in the Western Ghats. It is a subject that would require a detailed and separate analysis, perhaps in a later publication.
