The Chilika Development Authority in collaboration with Wetlands International ' South Asia developed a management framework for the conservation and wise use of Lake Chilika in Odisha State in eastern India. The management framework represents the commitment of multiple stakeholders to support the wise use of the Lake that was listed as a wetland of international importance in 1981. The development of the framework followed several decades of successful restoration and on-going management involving governmental and nongovernmental organizations and local stakeholders. In 2002, the Authority received the triennial Ramsar Wetland Conservation Award in recognition of its impressive work and outstanding achievements in restoring the Lake.
