For Prevention and Control of water pollution and maintaining or restoring of wholesomeness of water and prevention, control & abatement of air pollution  environmental laws namely Water (Prevention and Control Pollution) Act, 1974 and Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981 have been enacted.  Central and State Pollution Control Boards came into existence to fulfill the  purpose mentioned in the above Acts. With the Constitution of Chhattisgarh State, a Board namely Chhattisgarh Environment Conservation Board came into existence.

Strategies


The State has prepared its Environmental Policy within the basic framework of economic and social priorities with the objective of ensuring environmental conservation without impeding any development imperatives. It is aimed at:

* Ensuring sustainable development with an emphasis on social and intergenerational equity

* Enhancing environmental performance as a means of competitive advantage for the State

* Improving the quality of life of citizens.



Some of the Strategies for sustainable development of the State's resources are as follows:


Environmental Resource Planning:


The government will focus on sustainable management of essential ecological processes and life support systems. This would ensure sustainable and rational utilization, conservation and integrated environmental management, within all areas viz. land, air, water, forests, bio-diversity, minerals, industry, agriculture as well as urban planning and transport.

Colloborative Governance and Market based Mechanism:


Through collaborative efforts, impact of actions of developmental projects on all affected biophysical and social elements would be considered. As the implementation of the evironmental policy is the responsibility of various departments, the requirements of the environmental policy would be integrated with the policies of water resources, forest, road, transport, housing, industry and mining departments. Measures will be undertaken wherever reasonable and practical, and with due regard to public interest, to ensure that the costs of environmental degradation are borne by the person(s) responsible for the degradation

Positive Intervention through Public Participation


Public awareness and participative decision making is essential for effective, long term environmental protection and equitable utilization of natural resources. The commitment and participation of people to this process and to matters of environment that directly and indirectly concern them would hold the key to sustained prevention of environmental pollution and degradation
