National Wetland Inventory and Assessment (NWIA)



India's Wetlands
Wetlands are areas of critical ecological significance: they support biodiversity, and directly and indirectly support millions of people including storm and flood control, clean water supply and food, fiber and raw materials. There are 19 different types of wetlands in India, ranging from mangroves to high-altitude lakes, from marshes to ponds, and cover an estimated 3 percent of India's land area. These unique natural resources are under threat from developmental activities and population pressure. An updated and accurate satellite-based database such as this, will help decision-making that is in support of these critical ecosystems.
