Training Programme on: Understanding Environmental Laws for Better Compliance

September 18-22, 2017

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) New Delhi, is conducting a five days training programme on ‘Understanding Environmental Laws for better Compliance’ to be held between September 18-22, 2017.

India has a comprehensive system of regulations to protect its natural environment and the health of its people. From the enactment of Water Act in 1974, a number of laws and regulations have been put into force in this regard. However, the intended purposes of these laws are far from being fulfilled due to various reasons. One of the issues which sterns out is a holistic understanding of the different laws and how they should be looked into in a concerted manner for better environmental management.

The primary objective of the programme is to develop a better understanding and knowledge of the laws and their interrelationship.

Laws related to environmental preservation, pollution abatement, forest clearance, coastal zone regulation, and international treaties will be discussed during the programme.

On completion of the training, the participants will have:

1. Better understanding of environmental governance structure of the country, major institution, and their implementation statistics

2. Increased understanding of the obligations of industry and individuals under various environmental laws and regulations and how to meet these obligations

3. Participation of concerned internal and external stakeholders in the compliance process

4. Understanding the impacts of violations and noncompliance

5. Role of National Green Tribunal (NGT), environmental courts and public interest litigation (PIL)

6. Understanding of international treaties and agreements Government of India subscribes to and the impact of non-compliance with such agreements on business

7. A clear understanding that environmental compliance is not a financial burden but a clear business opportunity

Announcements

  • With rapid urbanisation and rising consumption of goods and services, India is facing a massive waste management challenge. Every year, urban India produces 62 million tonne (MT) of municipal solid waste, 31 MT of which is dumped onto landfill sites. Figures for recycling are abysmal; for instance, only 1.5 per cent of e-waste is recycled. The need of the hour is to shift the focus of waste management towards processing and resource recovery.

  • Centre for Science and Environment recognises Social Impact Assessment (SIA) as an important tool to inform decision makers, regulators and stakeholders about the possible social and economic impacts of a development project. To be effective, SIA requires the active involvement of all concerned stakeholders. CSE has developed a five-day training programme aimed at giving practical exposure to participants on SIA with specific reference to infrastructure, mining and other industrial projects.
