The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India, has designated us as the Ramsar CEPA (Communication, Education, Participation and Awareness) NGO Focal Point.

The nomination of Government and NGO CEPA National Focal Points by every Contracting Party is regarded as the starting point for an effective review of CEPA needs within each country, leading ultimately to a CEPA Action Plan. In this role, we will be working closely with the Wetlands Unit of the Ministry to develop and implement a CEPA Action Plan and strengthen implementation of the Ramsar Convention in the country.
