Our Initiatives

Ecologics & Innovations believes that one ecosystem is one planet. Humans as well as every other organism are dependent on their environment. Every living and non-living components of an ecosystem from plants to microbes to man is linked together in a complicated web. Their interdependence results in their proliferation and even on their survival. Any change in their environment, even in distant parts of the planet affects living things and their environment elsewhere. Ecosystem along with its biotic and abiotic components is an integral part of this environment.

Environment has now become a concern worldwide. An ever expanding population, warning level of pollution, massive land degradation, large scale deforestation and a number of other anthropogenic causes lead to an overall degradation of environment. A prime concern of Ecologics & Innovations is to conserve the environment we survive in.

Forest Conservation

Human history is based on clearance of forest. About 200 square kilometer of forest is being lost every day in the present world (FAO 2006). Deforestation rates are highest in tropical developing countries which also includes India. Human induced land use change and degradation of forest is rapidly leading us towards a world devoid of forest covers. Destruction of forest means damaging the entire ecosystem and loss of all valuable natural resources, be it land, air, water or biodiversity. Ecological restoration is “the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged, or destroyed” (Society for Ecological Restoration Science and Policy Working Group, 2004).

In its longstanding efforts, Ecologics & Innovations has able to create a footprint in restoration and conservation of forest ecology. We hold the hands of forest communities for a sustainable conservation practice.

Climate Change

Climate change is the biggest crisis in the history of mankind across the globe and India is a hard hit. Increasing temperatures, erratic rainfall and changing seasons are leading to a number of dramatic and often dreadful consequences, like, loss of biodiversity, changing habitats, crop failure and food shortage, disease outbreak and other health stress, rising sea level and large scale inundation, increasing disasters and a lot more. Poor are the most vulnerable as they lack access to necessary knowledge and infrastructure to face the challenge. Mitigation options are minimal and we are beyond time. Adaptation is the only other way to fight the situation.

Ecologics & Innovations functions for both mitigating and adapting to climate change starting from the advocacy to grassroots level.

Waste Management

Generation of colossal amount of waste and the threats posed by it to environment and human health has become a global crisis. Population growth, urbanization and economic development increase waste generation, thereby, overstraining an already poor waste management system in most of the developing countries.

Improper waste management practices and insufficient waste management system/infrastructures are becoming a severe obstruction to achieving clean water, air, uncontaminated soil or safe food. A number of health issues are also emerging from waste contaminations. Waste management not only addresses prevention of pollution but also concerns about getting wealth out of waste. Reduce, reuse, recycle, recovery and disposal are the five parts of waste management.

Ecologics & Innovations has been engaged in urban waste management during its journey towards sustainability.

Water Conservation

Freshwater scarcity is one of the biggest crisis world is facing today. One third of world’s population is living with water crunch. By 2025, 1800 million people across the globe will face acute water scarcity and India will be a water stressed country. Human race does not have enough time to think or discuss about saving this priceless natural resource, rather it is the time to act for conserving water everywhere each single way possible to keep alive themselves.

Ecologics & Innovations has been engaged in continuous awareness and research programmes for conservation of freshwater resources in both urban and rural areas.

Disaster Response

Disasters have huge economic impacts on developing nations. Poor are most vulnerable from disaster risk. Unpreparedness and inability to access proper infrastructure and knowledge makes the situation worse for those living at the margin. Incidentally, climate change has made the disasters more frequent and more aggressive.

India being traditionally vulnerable to natural disasters has 60% of its landmass earthquake prone, 40 million hectares area flood prone, about 8% of total area cyclone prone and 68% of the area drought prone. Though the country is moving towards disaster preparedness yet most of the exposed populations are unaware and unprepared to face increasing disasters.

Ecologics & Innovations works towards increasing resilience to natural hazards through its various activities.

Ecosystem Based Approach

Ecosystem approach is an adaptive and complex management of dynamic natural systems. Services that the ecosystems provide - are vital to every sphere of existence and conservation. Central principle of the Convention of Biological Diversity is the ecosystem approach and it describes the same as, “a strategy for the integrated management of land, water and living resources that promotes conservation and sustainable use in an equitable way.”

Ecologics & Innovations believes that every strategy for sustainable development and climate resilience shall be with an ecosystem approach for conservation of natural resources. There is no such universal model for ecosystem approach as it depends regional factors and demands. Conservation principles of Ecologics & Innovations takes forward the ecosystem approach as an integral to all its acitivities.
