Adani Group gets approval for Coal Mine Project in Australia

Details:

  • The plan was approved by the central government in April, 2019.
  • The project aims to ensure energy security for India and create more jobs for Australia.

Background:

  • Adani Group's mining project in Australia faced various controversies for almost nine years as the environmentalists warned it of the severe damage it might cause to the Great Barrier Reef.
  • In August 2015, a federal court in Sydney revoked the environmental clearance given to the project.
  • It cited the reason as the project threatened the Yakka Skink, Australia's native lizard and a species of ornamental snake found in the area.
  • The Australian government later reversed the decision and gave the approval.
  • But the government imposed more conditions relating to community issues and environmental standards.
