GOA: Conservation will work only if there is an incentive, said environmental activist Parag Rangnekar while speaking on Corporate Social Responsibility as a tool towards environmental conservation on Wednesday.“If communities see value in conserving natural resources or if there is direct dependency, then conservation works. In such a scenario, incentivising conservation becomes important,” he said.
Eco-tourism is one such aspect that has amazing potential wherein there is incentive to preserve natural resources and get paid for it. Rangnekar said that this has great scope, especially in a place like Goa.He further said that CSR concerns ecology as well and that corporates could possibly carry out biodiversity assessments of the area their project is in and enhance the ecology there.
