Training/Sensitisation Programme on Environment and Law by M. C. Mehta Environmental Foundation [Aug 17-19, Delhi]: Register by Aug 10

The Stockholm Declaration of 1972 was the beginning of the era of stringent environmental legislations and protection activities. Despite having a strong legal framework for environment, India ranks 177th out of 180 countries in the Environment Performance Index, 2018.

This shows the utter failure of implementation of the laws to control environmental pollution and degradation as the pollution levels hit a new high and a large population in India has become victim of air pollution, water pollution, hazardous waste, etc.

Keeping this in view, MCMEF is organising a Training/Sensitisation Programme which will look into the Environmental laws in India, familiarise and update the participants with the latest laws and landmark judgements/ directions (Passed by National Green Tribunal, Supreme Court). By assessing key statutes, ascertaining the implementation gap and discussing remedial measures, via means both educative and creative, the participants
shall be equipped to form correct opinions and take appropriate action.
