Orientation Programme on Urban transportation reforms for clean and liveable cities: March 22 – 24, 2011

     
The orientation programme during March 22 – 24, 2011 brought together a select group of policy makers from different cities of India. These include Nanded, Maharashtra; Mumbai; Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh; Kolkata, Kozhikode, Kerala; Kottayam, Kerala; Korba, Chattisgarh; Chennai and Noida, Uttar Pradesh. The objective of this forum is to promote good regulatory practices in air quality and mobility management. Cities have already begun to develop action plans in response to the air quality management policies, National Urban Transport Policy and the reform agenda of the JNNURM to achieve clean air and sustainable mobility. These along with the state level transportation and clean air action plans have created the policy opportunity for change. This forum facilitated interaction with a select group of experts and resource persons to capture the learning in the region as well as demonstrate change through field based case studies.

    November 28, 2014

    10 AM-5.00 PM

    Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites you to a day-long briefing on whether diesel price deregulation has helped bring down the pollution caused by diesel vehicles.

  • The fast growing economy, rapid industrialisation and growing urban population in India along with increasing wastewater generation are reasons for concern and reiterate the need for appropriate water management practices. Centre for Science and Environment recognises this need and has developed a five-day hands on training programme aimed at giving practical exposure to participants on wastewater treatment for industrial and urban wastewater management including reuse and recycle.

  • Date: December 1-5, 2014

    India has about 3.3 million kilometers of road network, which is the second largest in the world. Apart from the development and growth that these projects bring, they also have adverse environmental and social impacts.

    Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is an important tool to inform decision-makers, regulators and stakeholders, about the possible environmental, social and economic costs of such projects.
