Announcements

  • Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is conducting a three-days training programme on ‘Self Regulation and Environmental Auditing’ to be held from November 22-24, 2017 at New Delhi.

  • With rapid urbanisation and rising consumption of goods and services, India is facing a massive waste management challenge. Every year, urban India produces 62 million tonne (MT) of municipal solid waste, 31 MT of which is dumped onto landfill sites. Figures for recycling are abysmal; for instance, only 1.5 per cent of e-waste is recycled. The need of the hour is to shift the focus of waste management towards processing and resource recovery.
