Mining Overview

Mining is a contentious subject. It generates almost as many viewpoints and positions as the number of its contestants. It is, unarguably, a core industrial sector and crucial for India’s economic growth. It is growing at a rapid pace – between 1993 and 2005, the mining sector showed a compound annual growth rate of 10.7 per cent. It is likely to grow at a much faster rate in coming years. Post-liberalisation, mining is being done not only to satisfy India’s domestic requirements, but also to meet the growing international demand. China, in particular, has emerged as a major market for Indian minerals.

Chhattisgarh announced a proposed investment of more than Rs 1,77,000 crore in the state. Until October 2008, it had signed over a hundred mous with companies like Jindals, Tata Steel and Essar. 


Urban Rainwater management

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has, over the years, researched and spread awareness about the relevance of rainwater harvesting in urban areas. Among its most successful initiatives has been conducting training workshops for various stakeholders, including non-governmental organisations, researchers, residents’ welfare associations, engineers, architects, urban planners, civic body officials and industry consultants.


Domestic wastewater treatment and reuse

The explosive, haphazard, and thirsty growth of urban India generates tonnes of mostly untreated waste in its wake. A problem compounded by poor management, inefficiencies and inequities.
