Conducting a background study on 'Reforming Global Architecture of Marine Resource Security: An Indian Perspective'
Project STARs - a pioneering ESD project in the state of Goa explored the principles of sustainable development through the adoption of the 3C sustainable school concept. It was a three year project (2013-2016) jointly implemented by the Dempo Group of Companies, and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) across 10 schools in Goa. Project 'STARs' sought to inspire and encourage schools to practice the principles of sustainability by focusing on its environmental and socio-cultural performance.
Specific objectives of the project were to:
A project supported by GIZ assesses the ecological baseline of the coastal marine protected area – the Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary in Chorao, Goa. The broad objectives of this project is conducting review and suggest participatory management of the Island estuarine ecosystem and to conduct baseline assessment of ecological status of the marine protected area.
Projects supported by NABARD on the demonstration of mussel and crab farming actively engage and encourage the local fishing communities to undertake mariculture, as an adaptive measure to overcome the impacts of climate change and increasing anthropogenic activities, as well as providing options for livelihood diversification and stimulating healthy socio economic development in the area. We have been regularly conducting demonstration programme of mussel culturing in different coastal ecosystems such as estuaries, creeks and ponds to the coastal communities through CSR support.
As a 'Sustainability Partner' to Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority, TERI is providing technical inputs and handholding support in planning for upcoming urban and infrastructure development at the new capital city of Amaravati. This includes rendering services to guide, assess, facilitate and coordinate sustainable, low carbon and climate resilient urban and infrastructure development related activities in the new capital city.
Eco–city broadly means a human settlement modelled on the self–sustaining structure and functioning of natural ecosystems. It is developed on the lines of integrated urban planning and management programmes addressing social and ecological health of the city. Navi Mumbai, a planned twin city of Mumbai, is ready to take up another stride towards sustainability through a joint venture of TERI and NMMC (Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation) under the project “ECO–CITY”.
As per the Maharashtra Municipal Corporation (MMC) Act 1949, section 67(A), it is mandatory for all Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) of the state of Maharashtra to submit an annual Environmental Status Report (ESR) to General body on or before 31st July. The ESR indicates the city’s environmental concerns, growth factors and its impacts, provides information on the environmental infrastructure including water supply, sewage management, traffic and transportation, solid waste management, biodiversity, overall environmental pollution and degradation and possible mitigation measures required.
The Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) regularly monitors the qualitative state of the water resources across the state as well as the air quality across various locations in the state. TERI has been extending support to the State Pollution Control Board in sorting and analyzing the data sets whilst developing graphical and spatial illustrations. It helps in providing a comprehensive overview of the situation in one glance and helps develop strategies for reducing the pollution levels.
These resins will be biocompatible and can be used as dental restoratives. These materials will have good wear characteristics and enhanced mechanical properties. In this study, alkoxy silane will be used along with a mixture of dimethacrylates.
