Policy studies related to any subject are the reflection of objective reality. Thus the policy related to wetland conservation of 1942 under the iniative of Sir Peter Scott of the UK, or the policy envisaged in the Ramsar Convention of 1971, is different from the Ramsar policy adopted in the Third Conference in 1987 which gave birth to the "wise-use" concept.
The present volume entitled Ramsar Wise-Use Protocol: Indian Experiences deals with conservation and management of wetlands in different states of India – from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. The authors have given a detailed background of Ramsar documents, such as the classification system of wetlands, the objectives of Ramsar conventions and the outcome of the series of conferences that was useful for Indian applications. The term Ramsar has been taken after a coastal city in Iran where the Ramsar Convention was held with an objective to conserve different types of wetlands and how to strike a balance with human populations.
The volume includes several papers reflecting on a large number of Indian states. The approaches adopted by each paper's writer are unique and cover conservation strategies, management issues, policy issues and human aspects. This omnibus volume is highly useful to the scientific community, environmentalists, policy makers and students.
