Guidelines for Preparation of Brief Document to facilitate implementation of the Wetlands (Conservation and Management) Rules, 2010

Wetlands are areas covered with water permanently or seasonally. They are amongst the most productive ecosystems on the earth. Water is life, and wetlands are life support systems that ensure the functioning of the water cycle. Wetlands store water, reduce flooding, improve water quality, recharge aquifers, maintain shorelines, and prevent soil erosion.
