Man’s concern for natural environment has always been a point of consideration but the serious concern about the issue of resource depletion and degrading environmental ecosystems began after the Second World War, when industrialization started vigorously. Population explosion, ever increasing thirst of consumerism and advancement in human life and life style posed a serious challenge to the very survival of the human species. Environmental problems thus, have become critical. The protection of environment and conservation of resources has emerged as the focal point of nations. The international debate and concern for ecology has now become the watchword. As the concern for environmental problems increased, government institutionalized the environmental issues through new legislations and regulations. International agencies especially the United Nations swung into action. Civil society organizations started playing a proactive role in global environmental governance.
Manav Vikas with all its stake holders have been consistently putting effort in increasing greenery and maintaining ecological balance in the intervention area. The organization has established BMCs (Bio-Diversity Management Committees) for the look after and conservation of all the elements of the ecology system.
