CREATING AWARENESS ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT
Partnering Organization: Self Initiated
Location: Kalyandurg, Andhra Pradesh
The KCT Group is undertaking an afforestation project in the aim to create a green belt in Kalyandurg, Andhra Pradesh. To begin with we aim to plant at least 10,000 trees in the next two years.
Organic and integrated workshops have been planned for the local farmers from nearby villages to introduce them to vermi-composting, crop rotation and other integrated farming techniques. This will keep them updated with the latest farming techniques. Organic and low-cost farming material will also be provided. By educating the local community in sustainable farming practices the aim is to provide them with the tools to maintain the land as well as their own, in an environment-friendly way.

Partnering Organization: Clean Ganga, Government of India, Mo Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEFCC)?
Location: Pan India
The Clean Ganga Project, announced on 31st December 2009 by the Indian government, has a number of objectives - from controlling non-point pollution from agricultural run-off, human defecation and cattle wallowing to setting up waste treatment and disposal plants alongside the river; from conservation of the river’s bio-diversity to development of public amenities like ghat development; from building new technologies and processes to clean the river to intensive monitoring and real time reporting.
The project was initiated with a view to completely restrict the release of untreated municipal sewage and industrial waste by 2020. This led to the establishment of the National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA), which ensures the abatement of pollution and conservation of the river Ganga by adopting a river basin approach for comprehensive planning and management.
