Program for Supporting Environmental Trainers and Communicators 

Why?

India is one of the fastest growing economy. By 2050, India’s economy is projected to be the world’s second-largest, behind only China.

While the country still continues to face the tremendous challenge of reducing poverty of its ever-growing population, environmental sustainability is going to be the next greatest challenge along India’s development path. This is evident from the persistent high levels of environmental pollution and threatened resource security. India is today among the bottom most countries on the Environmental Performance Index (EPI) that is published by the Yale University. Despite several initiatives and an enabling legislation, keeping up with the environmental challenges of rapid urban growth, industrialization and rampant resource depletion and degradation have proved to be difficult.

While in response, the environmental governance is reflecting global concern, the institutional capacity for the very much needed awareness, education and, leadership for implementation is lagging far behind.

A considerable work is being done in environmental education at schools and colleges by environmental Non Government Organization (NGOs). Business associations have been offering Continuing Education Programs (CEPs) and new graduate programs have been launched on various facets of modern environmental management.
