This document in two volumes deals with the Environmental and Social Management Framework (ESMF) of National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA). The Government of India (GOI) has established NGRBA for the comprehensive management of the river with the mandate of addressing both water quantity and quality aspects, through a multi-sector, river-basin approach.
