NWAP recommends environ min to set-up DD Prakriti with MIB, DD
MUMBAI: The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) has been recommended to set-up an infotainment channel in collaboration with ministry of information and broadcasting (MIB) and public broadcaster Doordarshan.
Christened DD Prakriti, the objective of the channel is to promote awareness about nature conservation in the country. The channel is projected to start in 2018.
The recommendation to set-up DD Prakriti has been made in the National Wildlife Action Plan (NWAP) for the period 2017-2031, which was released by environment minister Dr Harsh Vardhan earlier this month.
“The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) and the Doordarshan should, in collaboration with the MoEFCC, set up an exclusive channel ‘DD-Prakriti’ for promoting awareness about nature conservation in the country,” the NWAP has recommended in the draft report.
The ministry has invited suggestions from stakeholders on the draft action plan.
