Coastal Regulation Zone Report Cards

The regulations covering India’s environmentally sensitive coastal regulation zones (CRZ) are often written in highly technical and bureaucratic language. Namati and the Centre for Policy Research have produced these pocket CRZ Report Cards to clarify not only what the regulations mean in user-friendly language, but to illustrate how effective the various bodies created to protect the CRZs have been at fulfilling their remits. The report cards are available for the following topics:

  • Institutional Arrangements
  • Zoning & Classification of Coastal Areas
  • Project Appraisals
  • Enforcement & Compliance
  • Conservation
