Objective of the project is to create a database on water bodies in Bengaluru Metropolitan Area (Jurisdiction of BBMP and BDA) by identifying the water bodies through physical verification; assessing the water quality class, based on the water quality analysis; to prepare the water body database and to prepare the lake atlas with manual cartogra

Coal is an important part of India’s economic growth story. However coal mining in India also has a different cost, borne by the communities affected by these mines, who are rarely meaningfully informed or consulted when their land is acquired, their forests decimated, and their livelihoods jeopardised.

This analysis by Greenpeace shows that fresh water used in thermal power plants in seven drought affected states could meet requirements of 50 million people. In fact, all power plants in the country consume water that could meet needs of 251 million people. 

A report released by Greenpeace India, “Out of Sight - How coal burning advances India’s Air Pollution Crisis” reveals coal as the largest overlooked source of air pollution, and identifies air pollution emission hotspots in India visibly linked to thermal power plants in the area.

The present study report aims at recommending a smooth transformational action plan for the TN electricity sector to meet the hugely onerous electricity requirements by 2050 after a due diligence process involving: the analysis of state’s geographic and climatic conditions, and the natural resource base from the climate change perspective; consi

A ranking of the 17 cities covered by the National Air Quality Index (NAQI) was released by Greenpeace India, and reveals data to challenge the complacence of the Central and State Governments regarding cities other than Delhi: as many as fifteen of the 17 Indian cities with NAQI stations showed levels of air pollution that far exceed the prescr

This study comprehensively examines the manufacturing supply chain of different components used in RE systems, especially wind and solar technology, in India.

The Government of India (GoI) initiated the ‘100 Smart Cities Mission’ in 2014. This has triggered deliberations across the country on the concept of smart cities, the need and the orientation of the Mission in the context of India’s present urbanisation scenario. The concept of a ‘Smart City’ is a relatively new phenomenon in India.

A latest study by the Centre for Ecological Sciences (CES), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), has shown that 54 per cent of lakes in the City have been encroached upon for construction activities and turned into garbage dump yards.

One of the prime lakes in the City, Sankey Tank, too faces the threat of increasing pollution and encroachment. The government claims that Sankey Tank is a model lake but in reality, it is highly polluted, shows a report published by Centre for Environmental Studies, Indian Institute of Science.
