"Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" comprising of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) was adopted by 193 countries of the UN General Assembly at the Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015. SDGs include important elements like ‘no poverty”, ‘zero hunger’, ‘quality education’, ‘clean energy’ etc. India along with other countries signed the declaration on the 2030 Agenda and the NITI Ayog, the apex body of GOI in co-ordination with State Governments is making all out efforts to achieve the targets under the SDGs.

Floating Biomass of Loktak Lake (Phumdi)
Loktak Lake is not only the largest freshwater lake in northeast India but is also home to unique floating islands called “Phumdis”. These circular landmasses are made of vegetation, soil, and organic matter (at different stages of decomposition) that have been thickened into a solid form. Most of the mass of Phumdis lies below the water surface. The thickness of these floating islands varies from a few centimeters to around two meters. During the dry season, when water levels drop, the living roots of the Phumdis can reach the lake-bed and absorb nutrients. When the wet season returns, they again float, and the biomass, which has enough nutrients stored in the plants' roots, survives. The largest mass of Phumdis are in the southern part of Loktak lake and the area has been notified as Keibul Lamjao National Park. Phumdis are habitat of over 83 species of plants. Mammals like the sangai, hog deer, common otter, jungle cat, bamboo rat, fox, Indian civets, musk shrew, flying fox, and others live in the phumdis in Keibul Lamjao National Park. A large number of reptiles including tortoises, common lizards, and poisonous snakes like krait, viper, cobra, and python also inhabit the park. Both migratory ...
