The Media Resource Centre dovetails its efforts with other CSE units to help disseminate information and establish a sustained and interactive contact with the mass media fraternity. It plans to extend to journalists the vast reservoir of information, resources and expertise within the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE). The objective is to bring into sharp focus environmental and sustainability issues in the national and international media and polity. The extraordinary reach of the mass media can aid in scrutinizing linkages between the environment and development: spark debates on crucial issues and lead to positive policy change. We hope to create a network of journalists committed to researching, investigating and generating information on issues that affect the livelihood of millions.

Announcements

  • 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.

  • CSE is organizing a global workshop on SMART and Affordable Monitoring titled “Asia-Africa Regulators Conclave on SMART & Affordable monitoring”, which is scheduled from 5 to 7 February 2018.

    Two of the main factors of sustainable development are air and water quality. Since they are important for basic human needs and development, it is therefore imperative to monitor air and water quality in order to ensure that their quality meet the regulatory standards.

  • Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS) and Continuous Effluent Quality Monitoring System (CEQMS) are mandatory for 17 categories of industries and common pollution treatment facilities in India. Grossly polluting industries also require monitoring and reporting effluent quality on real time basis. In near future, the real time data will become the basis for compliance check.
