Goa's Environment Faces Problems From Infrastructure Boom

by daijiworld.com posted 5days ago 9 views
Panaji, Sep 13 (IANS/Mongabay): Goa's much-highlighted opencast iron-ore mining has resulted in significant destruction of tree cover in the iron ore belts, where all vegetation is shaved off to scoop out top soil from hills and access the ore. The destruction left in its wake is well documented. A report by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) in 1997 estimated that 2,500 hectares of forests were lost due to mining between 1988 and 1997.
