World Heritage tag  for nine locations?

The river valleys of Bhadra, Sharavati, including Jog Falls are being proposed to be included in the list prepared by the Western Ghats Task Force. Also on the list is Kudremukh-Agumbe-Somes- hwara cluster, Bedthi and Kali river valleys in Uttara Kannada district and Khanapur forest region of Belgaum.

An effective policy will be promoted aiming at the conservation of bio-diversity in all these regions along with participation of local communities, who would have responsibility and as well as share in financial benefits emerging out of eco-tourism and any other eco-friendly activities in the region.
