New Delh: The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Environment and Forests is examining the recommendations of a government-appointed panel, which reviewed various green laws.

The standing committee, headed by Ashwani Kumar, has invited suggestions from individuals, experts, institutions, NGOs and stakeholders on the Report of the High Level Committee headed by T S R Subramanian to review various Acts administered by Environment Ministry.

Some of the major recommendations of the panel are providing economic incentives for increased community participation in farm and social forestry by way of promoting and proving statutory safeguards to 'treelands' as distinct from forest and making preparation of Wildlife Management plans mandatory and inserting provision to this effect in the Wildlife Protection Act.
