Public Participation Training Programme (PPTP)
PPTP is a programme which allows participants to understand the mechanisms of public participation in the process of land use planning through examples, review techniques, discussions and hands-on training. The programme was first initiated in 2003, through the MNS Centre for Environmental Training, Research and Education (CENTRE) which hopes to encourage public interest in land use decision making.
Structure and local plans are carried out by states and districts respectively, and determines the geographical location and type of land use and development that will be pursued for the next 10 to 20 years. By participating in this process, you can help ensure the best use of the land while ensuring the protection of your favourite recreational park or bird-watching spot.
