According to Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd., the above evidence showcase a higher need of provision of good healthcare infrastructure rather than developing it into an eco tourism site.

Sundarbans is a natural forest in Bengal. It has been recognized as the world’s largest cluster of halophytic mangrove forest. It covers about 10,000 square kilometers of land, out of which only 40 percent is in India and rest is spread across the borders of Bangladesh. UNESCO has acknowledged it as a world heritage site which harbours, a national park, a tiger reserve and a biosphere.

Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt.Ltd. The Principal Secretary for Tourism in India Ajit Ranjan Barshan, announced a release of a sum of rupees 185 crore by the state government of West Bengal and Private Corporations. The investment which was invited from the private sector was for the improvement of the infrastructure of tourism in Sunderbans. However, the environmentalists have raised questions on it. A self-prepared report submitted by Green Activist, Mr. Subhas Dutta to the National Green Tribunal shares that a master plan to conserve Sunderbans was never framed. Rather, the Sunderbans Development Authority carried out invariant, unplanned, short-term development activities which were either for political or financial gains.

Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt.Ltd. With the aim to develop the surrounding area of Sunderbans as an eco-tour destination, Ms. Mamata Banerjee (Chief Minister, West Bengal) and a group of industrialists had visited the site. Basis their observations, the field visit report stated that “Areas outside the declared forest region are also ‘critically vulnerable coastal areas’ falling under CRZ-1 (Coastal Regulation Zone-I) where permission cannot be given for developmental activities like tourism.”

The literal translation of the word Sunderbans is a “beautiful forest”. However, if the current trend of increasing pressure on the habitat of the place continues, the magnificent place shall gradually lose its identity. According to Mr. Dutta, the geology of the place is changing at a fast pace. If such projects are announced and developed, the impact of change on the environment shall be even higher.

A major reason which has prevented improvements in standard of living is healthcare facilities. The health facilities in the region are not technologically advanced. This has resulted in poor health of the populace, preventing them from earning their livelihood and stagnating economic growth. The president of the Indian Institute of Health Management Research (IIHMR) University Dr. S.D. Gupta shared his concern over a higher risk to resident children of Sunderbans. He suggested the state government to consider and place health issue as a higher priority. According to a research study carried out by the university in Sunderbans, about 55 percent of children are born at home, out of which only 5 percent of the children are born with the help of qualified professionals. Approximately 85 percent of children are born and still treated by the rural medical practitioners. These practitioners do not have a formal training.

According to Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd., the above evidence showcase a higher need of provision of good healthcare infrastructure rather than developing it into an eco tourism site. Ecotourism shall surely safeguard the environment and create more livelihood opportunities. Fiinovation believes that the regional community of the area shall be the direct beneficiaries of improved tourism in Sunderbans. However, it shall only be possible with better healthcare facilities in the region. Therefore, the state needs to improve the healthcare facilities, provide training to RMPs and campaign to create awareness among the regional populace to avail the health facilities.
