In 2011, urban India generated 62 million tonnes of solid waste per year (Census); this is slated to increase five-fold to 260 million tonnes per year by 2047 (TERI). Under the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM), 80% of the urban population (allowing for a 2% increase year on year) has to be covered for Solid Waste Management (SWM). The 2015 draft amendments to the Solid Waste Rules (2000) propose that every effort must be made to achieve the desired objective of zero waste (ZW). India’s adoption of this strategy has largely been at the local level driven by local governments such as Pune and Mysore, at the state-government level by states such as Gujarat, or by NGOs like Chintan, EXNORA, and Thanal. The 2nd NITI Aayog-CPR Open Seminar on “Conceptualising Zero Waste in India under Swachh Bharat: Possibilities and challenges” will focus on the desirability and applicability of the Zero Waste strategy in India, and the challenges faced in rolling this out, learning from national and international experiences.

15:05-15:15  –  Zero-waste in India: Some Policy Questions

Dr Chaturvedi has over 14 years of professional experience and specialises in climate change mitigation, waste management, sustainable consumption and production, and environmental policy. His current focus is on issues related to the circular economy and the drivers for Green Transformations.
This is part of the Open Seminar Series planned by NITI Aayog and Centre for Policy Research. These seminars aim to create a platform for deliberation on models for urban sanitation, including service delivery, through a series of thematic seminars with academic and research institutions, development partners, public and private organisations, NGOs and the three tiers of government. The seminar series will strengthen the understanding of the challenges and opportunities in sanitation by promoting evidence-based knowledge in the sector.

Prakash Javadekar, Environment Ministry: Do not allow state governments to hunt wild animals in high human conflict zone

Dharmik Bhatt 
Cutch-Mandvi, Gujarāt
Environmental ministry of India about to pass new law. In which humans are allowed to hunt certain wild animals like blue bull, wild boar etc. for short period of time in high human and wild animal conflict area. These are few point I want to put light on that.
1. Human already destroyed home and food of wild animals. if they come near to city or village in search of food or shelter. Is is their fault?
2. If they pass this new law can state or central govt. control illegal hunting in name of human and animal conflict?
3. Can state or central govt. keep count on how much animal killed?
4. Is state or central govt. doing enough to protect wild animals?
Please do not pass this law this will only destroy Eco system more and more. Kill is never justified, it does’t matter you kill human or animal. Save them in non human-animal conflict zone  and human conflict zone. Human created these conflict and non conflict for animals it is only home nothing else. Please support us.
