The NCEA had started a procedure to issue an advisory review of environmental information for the North Bengal Terai Development Project (third phase). The demand for support was however withdrawn and no advisory review was published.

Détails significatifs

Supported by the Dutch Government, the Indian Government wanted to improve the standard of living for small and marginal farmers in 3 districts of West Bengal. The proposed means to achieve this was increasing agricultural output, improvind the sustainable use of soil and water, improving the position of women, and increasing local ownership of irrigation facilities. This proposal was the third phase of a project which started in 1985.

Despite an initial request for the NCEA's assistance in the form of an advisory review, this request was later withdrawn by the Dutch Minister for Development Cooperation. The NCEA discontinued its procedure and did not publish an advisory review.
