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.
