What direction should India's waste management take? What does the future hold in store? Are landfills the answer? Is Waste-to-energy technology still a good bet? Why segregation is the key? These are some of the questions that come to our minds when we discuss waste management in our country. 

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), New Delhi is conducting a day long workshop on Solid Waste Management to discuss the scenario of waste management in the country. 

July 20-22, 2016

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) recognises CSR as a key business process that helps organisations demonstrate their commitments to being socially responsible. In fact, after the amendment of Companies Act in 2013 and promulgation of CSR Rules in 2014, addressing and reporting CSR performance has become mandatory.

Date: July 24-26, 2016

Venue: Chuti resort, Joydebpur, Bangladesh

Center for Science and Environment (CSE) and Water Aid Bangladesh (WAB) are jointly organizing a 3 day training programme for capacity building of practitioners, academicians and government officials from Bangladesh on Urban Rainwater Harvesting System.

Like the rest of the country, the north eastern region is dominated by fossil fuels when it comes to electricity generation. Even with an installed capacity of 3.5 giga-watts, the fact is that there is still a shortage of 5.1 per cent of electricity for the people in this region. This figure however does not include the millions of people who do not have access to electricity in the country. 

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.

Environmental issues like climate change, water availability, pollution, waste generation and disposal are commanding considerable global attention. Industries, as a major user of raw materials and energy and source of pollution and waste generation, have a major role in addressing current and emerging environmental issues.

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.
