Workshop educates Delhiites about ecosystem

Thursday, 23 May 2019 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

On International Biodiversity Day, Environment department of Delhi University organised a workshop to educate Delhiites about ecosystem across the world.

The team lead by Professor CR Babu in Yamuna Biodiversity park explained how rivers and primary channels work.

Ecosystems across the world, particularly in India, are not conducive to ensuring sustainable development, an environment expert said here on Wednesday.

 At a workshop to mark International Day for Biological Diversity, Professor Babu said that "all our rivers, primary channels and streams are dead".

"Every year, we hold conferences, have a nice dinner and talk about development without knowing that thermal power plants have been shifted to coastal areas due to unavailability of fresh water anywhere else," he said.

 "What sustainable development are we talking about? Ecosystems across the world, particularly in India, are not in a shape to ensure sustainable development," Prof Babu, the head of the Centre for Environmental Management of Degraded Ecosystem, Delhi University, said.

 He also expressed concern over the alarming rate of land degradation.
