Abstract
At the beginning of the 21st century environmental issues have emerged as a major concern for the welfare of the people. In India, the concept of environmental protection can be seen starting from the period of Vedas. The protection of environment is an urgent issue. Every individual, organization and institution has an obligation and duty to protect environment. Environmental protection encompasses not only pollution but also an sustainable development and conservation of natural resources and the eco system. Present day, the necessity of environmental awareness and enforcement is more demanding and urgent than ever before. The protection of environment is a pressing issue. Every person, organization and institution has an obligation and duty to protect it. Environmental protection encompasses not only pollution but also sustainable development and conservation of natural resources and the ecosystem. Today, the necessity of environmental awareness and enforcement is more demanding and urgent than ever before. Despite provisions in Indian Constitution providing for Environmental protection and many statutory provisions, the environment degradation continues. The main cause for environment degradation is lack of effective enforcement of various laws. The emergence of NGOs represents an organized response by civil society especially in those areas in which the state has either failed to reach or done so in adequately. The importance of public awareness and NGOs involvement in environmental protection is acknowledged worldwide. NGO’s have been taking a number of steps to promote discussion and debate about environmental issues, outside the broad spheres of popular media and the educational system. Advocacy and awareness is especially crucial in promoting concepts such as sustainable development, natural resource conservation and the restoration of ecosystems. NGOs can sensitize policy makers about the local needs and priorities.
