Highlight of the Agenda
- A sneak review on the Impact of Government Initiatives & Policies
As per the constitution mandate, India is committed to create a clean environment and pollution free air and water. India’s commitments and obligations to environmental conservation and protection within the ambit of the targeted goals on environmental sustainability under the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is manifested in the fact that several administrative and regulatory measures, schemes, initiatives including a separate statute on air and water pollution are implemented or under implementation since long. The opening session would give an opportunity to understand the challenges these initiatives have face ad what is the way forward I achieving the goal before 2024.
- Climate Change effects on Health and Healthcare Infrastructure
Globally, household and ambient air pollution causes 7 million premature deaths each year, including more than 5 million caused by NCDs related to air pollution. Air pollution is the second leading cause of deaths from noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) after tobacco smoking. Although air pollution affects people of all regions, ages, and social groups, it is likely to cause greater illness in those with heavy exposure and greater susceptibility. Persons are more vulnerable to air pollution if they have other illnesses or less social support. India being the second most-polluted country globally after Bangladesh shaves off 5.2 years from the life expectancy of the average Indian and it most acutely hits people living in the Indo-Gangetic plains. This panel discussion is designed to highlight the magnitude of the air pollution on environment to public health and challenges faced by healthcare sector in terms of existing infrastructure, medicines and new age products and technology to tackle such NCDs conditions in people.
- New Technology, Products, ITES, and Innovative Solutions
Despite the negative impact of technology on environment, a recent rise in global concern for climate change has led to the development of new environmental technology aiming to help solve some of the biggest environmental concerns that we face as a society through a shift towards a more sustainable, low-carbon economy. Environmental technology is also known as ‘green’ or ‘clean’ technology and refers to the development of new technologies which aim to conserve, monitor or reduce the negative impact of technology on the environment and the consumption of resources.
This session will offer a sneak peek into new age renewable energy technology. Modern & Smart IT AI driven Environmental Technology, Smart Automobile Fuel Solutions and Alternatives, Direct Air Capture (DAC) monitoring of Greenhouse gases and Air purification technology
- Role of Indian Citizen, Institutions, Communities & Corporate
People play a big role in controlling the hazardous impact of climate change in any community and society. The role of citizens in pollution control is to reduce the sources of pollution. The processes like the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle can be used to reduce the amount of wastes. There can be programs developed to create awareness against the pollution. How people can be made known about the evil consequences of pollution through effective communication strategies, awareness program and community support with the help of corporate and multiple business sectors. How education system can imbibe the good practices among the new generation to tackle the environmental menace on day to day basis.
