Today:- Sep – The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) is to train million of unemployed youth in rural India in skills such as municipal waste management and maintenance of air pollution equipment, amongst other skills. These youth will be trained in these environment related subjects under the National Skill Development Mission (NSDM).
NSDM is a high priority for the Modi government. These environmental issues affecting all of us need urgent remedy. So this initiative by CPCP serves both purposes, to provide jobs as well as taking care of the environment. ” A clean environment and well trained youth are beneficial to the country as well as the job market.” a CPCB official said.
The three month training will be provided to class 10 and 12 graduates in the age group of 18 to 30 years. The training programme will include many aspects of waste management such as operation and maintenance of treatment plants, including sewage treatment plants, air pollution control equipment and waste handling including disposal of bio medical, electronic and municipal solid waste, along with industrial, construction and demolition waste.
Waste management in India has become an issue seeking immediate resolution. As per official estimates, around 62 million tonnes of solid waste is generated every year, of which only 43 million tonnes collected and 12 milion tonnes treated, which means to say about 21 million tonnes of waste is dumped in landfill sites every year. This number is expected to increase manifold in the coming years.
