The consultations conducted by the Ministry of Environment and Forests for gathering inputs for the formulation of the Green India Mission brought out the diversity of issues in different regions based both on the impacts of climate change and the type of efforts citizens and citizens groups are already making towards adaptation and mitigation. The need for decentralized and citizen-owned efforts for ecosystems regeneration and natural resource management echoed in all the consultations. EfC brings you a flavour of the GIM consultations.
Even as the Ministry puts the final touches to the Green India Mission plan, an energizing new school-based sustainability education programme 'Paryavaran Mitra' has been launched in the country. More information about Paryavaran Mitra is inside as well as a sustainability education activity.
