Managing Urban Air Quality: Focus on Clean and Fuel Efficient Vehicles: January 27 – 29, 2011

 
     

CSE organised a three-day orientation programme on 'Managing Urban Air Quality: Focus on Clean and Fuel Efficient Vehicles,' from January 27 – 29, 2011 in New Delhi.  More and more cities are getting extremely polluted with serious health impacts. Vehicular emissions contribute significantly to human exposure. How clean is our air also depends on how clean our engines and fuels are, how clean they remain over time and the nature of the transportation system and their modal share in cities. Fuel efficiency requirements can also minimise the energy impacts of motorisation. How must the cities approach vehicular pollution control for cleaner air? Regulators from 15 cities and towns of India and South Asia gathered for this orientation programme.

Announcements

  • Has diesel pricing deregulation helped address toxic risk from diesel vehicles?’

    Jacaranda 2, India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi

    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.
