Ecology, conservation, and restoration of Chilika Lagoon, India

C. Max Finlayson, Gurdeep Rastogi, Deepak R. Mishra, Ajit K. Pattnaik

    Research output: Book/ReportEdited bookpeer-review


    This book chronicles the decades-long work of studying, analyzing, and reversing the environmental pressures that threatened India’s Chilika Lagoon, the largest brackish-water lagoon in the region, and the second largest in the world. Designated as one of India’s first Ramsar Sites in 1981, Chilika Lagoon continued to degrade for a decade longer. Then, the Chilika Development Authority (CDA) was established to gather information and devise a restoration plan that benefits the ecosystems of the lagoon, with sensitivity to the needs and livelihoods of local communities.
