The Western Ghats Ecology Expert Panel (WGEEP), also known as the Gadgil Commission after its chairman Madhav Gadgil, was an environmental research commission appointed by the Ministry of Environment and Forests of India. The Gadgil Committee submitted a report in 2011 that predicted a flood situation in Kerala. However, the report was rejected by Kerala government.
The report was labelled favorable to environment and environmentalists and not development (or illegal mining ). Remember, there is a never-ending debate between environment and development; it’s tough to balance both without compromising the other.
