Mining Overview

Mining is a contentious subject. It generates almost as many viewpoints and positions as the number of its contestants. It is, unarguably, a core industrial sector and crucial for India’s economic growth. It is growing at a rapid pace – between 1993 and 2005, the mining sector showed a compound annual growth rate of 10.7 per cent. It is likely to grow at a much faster rate in coming years. Post-liberalisation, mining is being done not only to satisfy India’s domestic requirements, but also to meet the growing international demand. China, in particular, has emerged as a major market for Indian minerals.

Domestic wastewater treatment and reuse

The explosive, haphazard, and thirsty growth of urban India generates tonnes of mostly untreated waste in its wake. A problem compounded by poor management, inefficiencies and inequities.

Urban Rainwater management

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has, over the years, researched and spread awareness about the relevance of rainwater harvesting in urban areas. Among its most successful initiatives has been conducting training workshops for various stakeholders, including non-governmental organisations, researchers, residents’ welfare associations, engineers, architects, urban planners, civic body officials and industry consultants.

About Industry & Environment Unit

CSE's Industry and Environment Unit addresses an array of environmental issues related to Indian industries. It conducts research and advocacy on the impact of industrial pollution and provides training in related issues.

Work Overview

Our country is in the throes of rapid industrialisation, which is often accompanied with massive environmental and social burdens, principally borne by communities living in the vicinity of project sites. Monitoring tools like Environment Impact Assessment (EIA), therefore, assume great significance in ensuring sound economic development without compromising on environmental and social costs.
