Beginning with the construction of a small harbour in 1987. Pondicherry has seen its magnificent beach completely eroded through thoughtless development. Coastal systems are fragile and once destroyed, they are difficult to restore. The economic and ecological consequences are enormous.
This site chronicles the fight of citizens' groups to save our beach. It contains news items, educational articles, media coverage, and a library of documents relating to the specific struggle in Pondicherry, as well as to coastal preservation generally.
We encourage you to explore this site and lend your voice to the struggle to save our beach - our yours.
