Environmental Enforcement

Ecologics & Innovations is charged with developing, implementing and enforcing the state's environmental protection laws that ensure clean air, clean water, clean soil, safe pesticides and waste recycling and reduction.

Environment protection and management today is faced with key issues of compliance and enforcement. In the context of India, it is being increasingly realized that the insufficient capacity at various levels to deal with environmental problems is the root cause of environment degradation. This capacity needs to be strengthened by knowledge sharing and training of the stakeholders involved in the protection and management of environment.

Our environmental enforcement programs aim at capacity building by sharing knowledge and providing training on the environmental policy and legal framework in the country, relevant to all the sectors relating to environment and development that also encourages community based innovative gender sensitive participatory approach that lead to reduce threat to the local and global environment.

This program also aims at sharing innovative thinking on environment protection and management and its adaptability within the sphere of activity of the participants. Hence the program empowers the participants with the requisite knowledge of environmental policy and legal framework and innovative thinking patterns, to build capacity for the protection and management of environment.

Program's Objectives

The program primarily focus on sharing knowledge and training on environmental policy and legal framework, so as to make various recipients from several walks of life, equipped with the legal tools on environment protection. However, few ascertained learning objectives of the program are enumerated below:

  • Understand the role of law in the protection of environment and develop awareness of the role of various actors in enforcing environmental laws,
  • Recognizing the issues surrounding the environment degradation and its legal implications,
  • Identify major principles of environmental law and issues surrounding them and its practical applications,
  • Develop awareness of rights- based approaches to environmental protection,
  • Thinking new tools and techniques to enhance environmental protection and compliance with the environment law.

Environment & Development

Economic development and environment degradation are usually believed to be two sides of the same coin. Many studies have shown that even though the results of increased economic activity (at the cost of environment) may initially help in reducing inequalities but in the long run, the waste and pollution will severely impact the quality of life which will eventually put economy at risk. It’s important that the development should take place with an equitable use of resources and minimal environmental impact. In the context of developing countries like India; sustainable development acquires a lot of importance.

In India, due to its equally large urban and rural population, the environment is degrading due to pollution in urban areas and excess resources consumption in rural areas. If we continue to concentrate on development and neglect the environment, we will end up causing irreversible damage to the environment and jeopardize human survival. It can only be avoided by taking necessary steps, now. Many NGOs (placed in rural as well as urban areas) are addressing the concerned environmental issues in a systematic manner. Simple steps such as planting trees in urban areas and providing bio-fuels in rural areas are making large impact. Many NGOs have dedicated themselves to Protecting and Managing the Natural Resources around their locations. You too can be part of this greater effort with your small donations towards the causes for environmental sustainability.
