India | PA targets under Convention on Biological Diversity may be missed: government

India might not meet the international target of identifying wildlife and marine-protected areas by 2020, the National Board for Wildlife (NBWL) said in a meeting.


According to the minutes of the 47th meeting of the NBWL, chaired by Union environment minister Harsh Vardhan, India constituted only 4.9% of the total terrestrial land and inland waters under the network of protected areas (PA), which is far below the Aichi target of 17% for terrestrial land by 2020.
