From the United States Environmental Protection Agency:
President Barack Obama and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, as part of his first state visit, jointly launched a new U.S.-India Green Partnership aimed at strengthening cooperation between the two nations on a wide range of environment and climate initiatives.
Among these initiatives is the creation of an Indian National Environmental Protection Authority (NEPA), intended to enhance the authority of Indian environmental agencies, improve public information and transparency, demonstrate progress in environmental compliance and enforcement, and ultimately result in improved environmental quality for all Indian citizens.
The development of the Indian NEPA includes the establishment of a civil judiciary authority, the creation of a National Green Tribunal, and more general improvements in India’s environmental data collection and analysis.
