Major Programmes of Environmental Conservation

People use different types of environmental sources in their daily life to fulfil their survival needs. Various types of developmental works like industries, construction of roads, construction of buildings, irrigation project, etc are conducted in the country to get valuable services and facilities that we need. We should not destroy the environment while conducting the developmental activities.

Some of the efforts and programmes that are being implemented in the protection of environment are as follows: -
