Urban Environment Management

There is a need to foster the relationship amongst people, technology and environment, to attain the goal of sustainable development. At DA, we innovate and multiply alternative and sustainable tools, techniques, approaches and strategies to manage People-Nature interactions in all spheres, including the rural, urban, industrial, pristine and global environments. Influencing mind space and promoting sustainable development in urban areas is a key area of focus for us. Under our CLEAN-India (Community Led Environment Action Network) initiative, a nationwide programme on environmental assessment, awareness, action and advocacy, promoting behaviour change amongst the youth with the vision of developing a greener future. The mandate is to influence the mind space of the youth to become responsible decision makers for a sustainable tomorrow.

It has mobilised an extensive network of environmentally conscious citizens. It spearheaded nearly 48,000 environment conservation initiatives through a nationwide network of more than 70 NGO partners, 500 schools and 1.25 million school children and their communities. The network members engage in activities such as tree plantation, solid waste management, e-waste management, paper recycling and handmade paper manufacturing. Overall, these initiatives reduce millions of tonnes of carbon emission per year, besides conserving an enormous amount of natural resources and developing a cadre of young eco-citizens. Another area of work is water and sanitation packages to provide better facilities to city dwellers. We have designed a water filter package that comes with a 1,000-litre tank, which can easily purify 2,000 to 3,000 litres of drinking water per day, and can process enough water to cater to the needs of up to 200 households.
