A REVIEW ON THE YAMUNA ACTION PLAN
For several human activities, water is a primary resource, and rivers are a significant source of water in different parts of India. Problems with the water environment are progressively becoming serious across Asia, which is witnessing rapid progress. This is due to the increasing human population, urbanization, and Activities in economic terms. In particular, riverine water supplies are increasingly becoming vulnerable. River water management is an essential field of natural resource management that spans several disciplines and needs public involvement through appropriate institutions in order to be successful. First of all, this paper addresses the critical situation of the water supplies of the Yamuna river and the need for public action. The Yamuna River originates at Yamunotri in Himalayas and crosses through Himachal Pradesh and Uttaranchal, drawing water from many big streams in the upper stretch of 200 km The implementation of the Yamuna Action Plan will then be addressed and a broad management structure will demonstrate the institutional approach to river water management, using suitable policy instruments to achieve the objectives.
