Environment Program

Indira Gandhi was one of the world’s first leaders to embrace policies to protect the environment, long before it became a survival imperative. It was because of her personal interest and initiative that a number of conservation programmes were launched and laws put in place to protect our forests, wildlife and deal effectively with water and air pollution. An enduring legacy is Project Tiger, which has reversed the decimation of the species. Her speech at the UN Conference at Stockholm on June 14, 1972 was a decisive milestone in the global discourse on the environment.
