Community-Driven Environmentally Sustainable Village Programme (C.E.S.V.P)

 


The dream of making India a developed nation can be fulfilled with a multi-pronged strategy aimed at developing all villages to make them self-sufficient and self-reliant. This can be achieved with decentralized models of development empowering local youth and capitalizing through sustainable management of natural resources - land, water, energy and human resource.

India lives in the villages with 60 percent of its population belonging to the rural areas. The targets for India to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) would be difficult without the sustainable, self-sufficient and empowered villages. At least 12 of the 17 SDGs are directly linked to rural sustainable development and governance, and the rest too can only be accomplished through the holistic development of our villages.

It was initiated to overcome the rising trees shortfall in India. Thus creating a void in sustainable development of the environment and our country. The constant felling of trees in India has been a problem for a long time, and Van Mahotsav is important in creating awareness of the issues.

“Greenhouse gas (GHG) Inventory for Industries and Air Quality Prediction”

 

March 4-6, 2016
Venue: ISM Industry Institute Interaction Facility, New Town, Kolkata.

 

We are glad to inform you that Department of Environmental Science & Engineering, Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad is organizing 3 Day Training Program on ‘Greenhouse gas (GHG) Inventory for Industries and Air Quality Prediction” during March 4-6, 2016 , 2016 at ISM Industry Institute Interaction Facility, New Town, Kolkata.


About 31% of the global carbon emission occurs due to transmission, and distribution of electricity and about 21% comes from other industries. Many actions to mitigate the present GHG scenario are being taken on global platforms. As first round commitments of Kyoto protocol, initiative was taken within the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It strongly suggested anthropogenic sources to bring down the GHG emission 5.2% below their corresponding levels of emissions as it was in 1990 plus/minus the reduction commitment of the country. In order to comply with the global as well as national standards of GHG emission, development of emission inventory for the anthropogenic sources like energy sectors, mining industries, construction industries etc. are of utmost importance.


The aim of this training program is to provide a comprehensive knowledge towards the detailed understanding of the present scenario of GHG emission and air quality from perspective of environmental welfare and industrial development. The widely used procedures for developing GHG inventory and prediction of air quality will be discussed in depth which will be beneficial to the planners, decision makers and management personnel of different industries.


You are hereby requested to make wide circulation of this program to concerned executives, academicians, researchers, field engineers, policy makers and others to whom you feel necessary in your esteemed institution/organization.
