Constitution of Greater Panna Landscape Council

By PIB Delhi

As part of the Ken-Betwa Link Project (KBLP), which is a game-changer for the socio-economic prosperity of the drought-prone Bundelkhand region, a comprehensive Integrated Landscape Management Plan (ILMP) has been prepared for the conservation of wildlife and biodiversity in Panna Tiger Reserve (PTR) & surrounding areas. To ensure systematic and time-bound implementation of the Greater Panna Landscape Management plan, the Greater Panna Landscape Council (GPLC) has been constituted under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary, Govt. of Madhya Pradesh with members from all the stakeholders. Adequate financial provisions have been earmarked for the implementation of the Environment Management Plan and Integrated Landscape Management Plan under the Ken-Betwa Link Project. This model will be a template for future development with the motto – “विकासभीपर्यावरणभी”.

  1. The Greater Panna Landscape Council (GPLC) is constituted under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary, Govt. of Madhya Pradesh
  2. Ken-Betwa Link Project aims to provide water security in the Bundelkhand region while ensuring overall landscape & wildlife conservation
  3. Integrated Landscape Management Plan in Greater Panna Landscape is a major & unique measure in the Conservation history of India
  4. Goal of GPL is to ensure “win-win” situation for conservation through integration with the development process based on a balanced approach

The goal of the GPL and the council is to ensure a “win-win” situation for conservation through integration with the development process based on a balanced approach and considering the diverse stakes. The broad objectives are to enable the betterment of habitat, protection, and management for flagship species viz. tiger, vulture, and gharial in the landscape; to consolidate the landscape for overall biodiversity conservation through spatial prioritization and well-being of the forest-dependent communities, and to provide species-specific and site-specific monitoring strategies under the integrated landscape management in context with a feedback loop and adaptive management options.

Ken-Betwa Link Project (KBLP), the first interlinking of rivers project under the National Perspective Plan (NPP) taken for implementation, would be a game-changer for the socio-economic prosperity of the Bundelkhand region, which faces recurrent drought situations. The project is aimed at not only providing water security in the Bundelkhand but also ensuring the overall conservation of the region and especially for landscape-dependent species such as tigers, vultures, and gharial. Apart from taking mitigation measures as per the approved Environmental Management Plan, the Wildlife Institute of India (WII) has prepared a comprehensive Integrated Landscape Management Plan (ILMP) for the conservation of wildlife and biodiversity not only in Panna Tiger Reserve (PTR) but also in surrounding areas. The Integrated Landscape Management Plan in Greater Panna Landscape (GPL) is one of the major and unique conservation measures being initiated in the conservation history of India.
