participants drawn from various Engineers Without Borders (EWB) chapters worldwide, with
representation from EWB chapters in South Asia as well.
Programme design: Challenge of the Balance is structured as an orientation programme to give
international participants a first-hand experience of Southern perspectives concerning the
environment-development debate. The interdisciplinary coursework will allow participants to
understand and critically evaluate issues that lie at the interface of environment and development;
poverty; democracy, equity and justice; and culture.
It includes classroom lectures, seminars, local field excursions, together with challenging individual
and/or group project work. Participants will be given an intense briefing on issues that are of concern
to India and other developing countries. Field trips will serve to illustrate innovations and ecorestoration
efforts that communities make to enable them to face the challenges of managing their
natural resources base.
The programme modules include:
􀂃 Environmental governance in India;
􀂃 Poverty and the biomass economy;
􀂃 Ecological 'rights' and state of natural resource management (land, water & forests)
􀂃 Conservation regimes & the human-wildlife conflict
􀂃 Urban growth challenges;
􀂃 Sustainable industrialization and pollution control; and,
􀂃 Global environmental governance (focus on climate change politics).
The highlight of the programme is the opportunity for participants to live and interact with a rural
community for a week and prepare an eco-restoration plan for the village. Working in mixed teams
from developed and developing countries, they are expected to provide practical, technical and
sustainable solutions to benefit the host community (examples include solutions to water
management, decentralized solid and liquid waste management, meeting a community's energy
needs, among others). In this they will be helped and guided by area experts well versed with
grassroots realities.
In addition to a week-long field visit, the programme includes several local field excursions, to
familiarize them with urban challenges, including air pollution and urban mobility, river pollution &
waste management.
Faculty: Our training programmes attract leading experts across various fields to address course
participants. The core faculty for the proposed course will be drawn from CSE's experienced research
and programme staff. Visiting faculty and guest lecturers will include working development
professionals, eminent environmentalists, noted academicians from leading universities, grassroots
activists and prominent policy makers, among others.
Fellowships for South Asian participants: Several Anil Agarwal Fellowships are available to
support the participation of South Asian students and young professionals in the summer programme.
These Fellowships are competitive, and cover:
􀂃 Train fare (for Indian participants) or airfare (economy, for South Asian participants)
􀂃 Accommodation in a hostel and all meals for the duration of the course
􀂃 Training & facilitation fee, including course materials
􀂃 Use of all learning and research facilities (including the use of a common room with
computers and internet connectivity); and,
􀂃 All costs of the week-long visit to rural India, where participants will stay with the rural
communities to explore eco-restoration efforts, together with several local field trips in and
around Delhi; and,
􀂃 Please note that South Asia Fellows are expected to carry sufficient funds to cover their
personal expenses while in India.
Eligibility & how to apply: These Fellowships are competitive, and require candidates to write a
clear statement of purpose (the SOP should be about 500 words), including in it such things as why
they wish to attend this course, and how it will help them in their future work. The complete
application materials i.e. SOP together with their latest CV/resume, should reach the course contact
by Friday, May 21, 2010.
B. About the Anil Agarwal Green College
The Anil Agarwal Green College (AAGC), an education and training initiative of CSE, was established
to communicate the science, complexity and politics of environment across India, South Asia and the
world. It seeks to build a constituency and cadre of knowledgeable, skilled and committed
environmentalists – from students, decision-makers, field-level practitioners, civil society groups,
journalists, lawyers, and concerned citizens. As part of this mandate, AAGC serves as a research,
academic and capacity building hub that conducts a number of short and long-term courses and
training programmes.
Short-term courses range from technical workshops on how to build rainwater harvesting systems
and decentralized wastewater treatment structures to policy briefings on ecological poverty and food
safety, to hands-on training on environmental communication, information management and
advocacy. Other training programmes – such as Environment Impact Assessment (EIA), Managing
Urban Growth, and Urban Mobility, seek to actively engage with industry representatives and
regulators in the country and across the developing world.
Over the years, AAGC has conducted several courses targeted at international college students and
young professionals. Perhaps the most successful is the month-long course conducted for students of
The Centre for Development and the Environment (SUM), University of Oslo, Norway. AAGC has
conducted this programme for four successive years. Students considered the programme the most
rewarding experience in their academic career. Many choose to return to India to conduct research
for their Master's thesis.
Research, learning facilities at AAGC: The AAGC campus is located adjacent to the CSE main
office, and comprises state-of-art learning and training facilities. These include several classrooms
with overhead projectors, wireless connectivity throughout the building, several seminar and
conference rooms, together with computer labs and common rooms. Notable green building features
include energy-saving architectural design, rainwater harvesting systems, together with a
decentralized wastewater treatment system.
Environment Resource Centre: Considered among South Asia's most comprehensive information
resource centre, the CSE library is also housed in the AAGC building. The library manages the India
Environment Portal, a knowledge management initiative supported by the Government of India's
National Knowledge Commission. Course participants also have access to the fully-equipped Audio
Visual Centre, also housed in the AAGC building.
C. Centre for Science and Environment: A Profile
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is an independent public interest research organisation
that aims to promote an informed public opinion in favour of environmental sustainability and
sustainable development. CSE was started in 1980 by the late Anil Agarwal, a leading figure in India's
environment movement, to analyse and study the relationship between environment and
development.
CSE's work is widely acknowledged for its intellectual leadership and the institution has grown into
one of India's most influential and highly vocal environmental NGOs. Some prominent domestic and
international awards include the 2005 Stockholm Water Prize and the Prince Albert II of Monaco
Foundation Water Award in 2008. Sunita Narain, the present CSE director, received the prestigious
Padma Shri from the Government of India in 2006. Similarly, CSE Founder-Director, the late Anil
Agarwal, received the Norman Borlaug Award by the President of India in 2001, and was the recipient
of the prestigious Padma Bhushan of the Government of India in 2000. He also received the Global
Environment Leadership Award, GEF, in 2000; he was named 'Environmentalist of the Year' by Les
Realites de l'Ecologie, France in 1994, and was the recipient of the First A.H. Boerma Award, FAO, in
1979.
Some notable environmental programmes run by CSE include the following:
Right to Clean Air Campaign that has achieved remarkable success in pushing for CNG in all public transport in Delhi and more recently, in pushing for better urban mobility options that have made significant impact on the city's air quality. People's Water Management Campaign that mobilized the country through a water literacy campaign calling for decentralized solutions to water harvesting, water pollution, urban sewage management, catalyzing policy changes at both national and state levels. In recognition for its efforts, CSE was awarded the Stockholm Water Prize in 2005, the highest international award for water
management.
The Anti-Toxins Campaign has created far-reaching changes in the policies and regulations
governing the use of toxins such as pesticides and heavy metals. The two high profile studies (in
2002 and 2003) that found high levels of pesticide residues in bottled water and soft drinks, served to
highlight public health concerns and are important contributions in managing the toxic fallouts of rapid
economic and industrial growth.
CSE's Green Rating Project, an innovative project that rates the environmental performance of
industry in high environmental impact sectors (such as cement, automobiles, pulp and paper, chloralkali,
among others), helps motivate industries to make improvements in reducing pollution and
improve efficiency of resource use. GRP serves as a model for an alternative form of civil society
governance to control industrial pollution in India, and today a good GRP rating is considered as a
valuable certification about a company's environment performance.
Addressing the urgent need to introduce meaningful environmental education at the school level in
India, CSE's Green Schools Programme goes beyond nature education to get children to evaluate
and precisely measure their own environmental footprint using the Green Schools Manual. The Green
Schools Network today includes more than 5000 schools across the country, and the manual has
been translated into English, Hindi, Kannada, Punjabi and Arabic. In addition, Gobar Times, a
monthly magazine for children, keeps students informed and inculcates environmental values.
CSE has for long worked closely with journalists, recognizing the powerful role the mass media plays
in setting public agendas and shaping public opinion. CSE's Media Programme has several
components, from regular briefing workshops for working journalists, maintaining a syndicated feature
service to fellowship programmes that enable journalists to take time out to study and report specific
issues in-depth.

CEP Announces Launch of New 2010

"Population - Climate Change - Environment Fellowships"

 

The Center for Environment and Population (CEP), with four leading US and global institutes, announces the appointment of the 2010 CEP Fellowships on Population, Climate Change and the Environment.  This is the first of a new, ongoing series of Fellowships to - a) advance the science, science-policy-advocacy links, and real-world science application, and; b) build a much needed cadre of outstanding new young leaders, scientists, activists, spokespersons and policymakers worldwide - on "Population and Climate Change" and other key population-environmental linkages, for example, with water, forests, biodiversity, habitat and land use.

 

To launch the program, this year CEP is partnering with:

-National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)

-Green Belt Movement, Nairobi, Kenya

-The Nature Conservancy, Washington, DC

-Institute of Behavioral Sciences, University of Colorado

 

During 2010 Fellows will undertake cutting-edge research and/or analysis and reporting of key population, climate change and environmental issues to strategically advance the science and make progress on the science-policy-advocacy links in order to move the issues forward.  They will:

  • Do research and/or analysis and reporting to both strengthen the science and help integrate it into US and international policy and advocacy
  • Help determine how the science is linked and can enhance women-centered approaches to climate change, and girls/women's empowerment, education and reproductive health issues
  • Become part of CEP's long-term, ongoing mentoring project to create and facilitate new young leadership and "influentials" on the issues in science, policy, and advocacy

 

Reports on the fellows research/analysis will be published in late 2010 and be part of CEP and partner institutes' activities associated with the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) and United Nation's Millennium Development Goals (UN MDGs) in Fall 2010.  Following are summaries of the 2010 CEP Fellowships:

 

-National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR):  work with Dr Brian O'Neill and his NCAR research team to help develop a global, multi-regional population/household projection model as the demographic portion of an integrated assessment model used for carrying out research on issues related to climate change. This will include projections of future greenhouse gas emissions and the response of the climate system. A continuing focus of this work is on understanding the effects on emissions of various demographic factors, including aging, urbanization, and population growth/decline. 

 

-Green Belt Movement (GBM):  work with the GBM in Nairobi, Kenya to determine the links and potential opportunities between "girls education, women/girls empowerment, reproductive health, and family planning", and the GBM's traditional approach to conservation and development.

 

-The Nature Conservancy (TNC):  work with TNC's International Water Policy program to determine how population and gender issues are associated with water policy and climate change and water issues, and their MDG links.

 

-Institute of Behavioral Sciences (IBS), University of Colorado:  work with Dr Lori Hunter and her research team on both internal country level (Mexico) and international population migration patterns relating to environmental change.  A focus on gender, vulnerability, and adaptation will shed light on the potential migratory implications of climate change.

linkages, for example, with water, forests, biodiversity, habitat and land
use.



To launch the program, this year CEP is partnering with:

-National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) <http://www.ncar.ucar.edu/>

-Green Belt Movement, Nairobi, Kenya <http://www.greenbeltmovement.org/>

-The Nature Conservancy, Washington, DC <http://www.nature.org/?src=t1>

-Institute of Behavioral Sciences, University of
Colorado<http://www.colorado.edu/ibs>



During 2010 Fellows will undertake cutting-edge research and/or analysis and
reporting of key population, climate change and environmental issues to
strategically advance the science and make progress on the
science-policy-advocacy links in order to move the issues forward.  They
will:

  - Do research and/or analysis and reporting to both strengthen the
  science and help integrate it into US and international policy and
advocacy
  - Help determine how the science is linked and can enhance women-centered
  approaches to climate change, and girls/women's empowerment, education and
  reproductive health issues
  - Become part of CEP's long-term, ongoing mentoring project to create and
  facilitate new young leadership and "influentials" on the issues in
science,
  policy, and advocacy



Reports on the fellows research/analysis will be published in late 2010 and
be part of CEP and partner institutes' activities associated with the Clinton
Global Initiative (CGI) <http://www.clintonglobalinitiative.org/> and United
Nation's Millennium Development Goals (UN
MDGs)<http://www.un.org/millenniumgoals>in Fall 2010.  Following are
summaries of the 2010 CEP Fellowships:



*-National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR):*  work with Dr Brian
O'Neill and his NCAR research team to help develop a global, multi-regional
population/household projection model as the demographic portion of an
integrated assessment model used for carrying out research on issues related
to climate change. This will include projections of future greenhouse gas
emissions and the response of the climate system. A continuing focus of this
work is on understanding the effects on emissions of various demographic
factors, including aging, urbanization, and population growth/decline.



*-Green Belt Movement (GBM):*  work with the GBM in Nairobi, Kenya to
determine the links and potential opportunities between "girls education,
women/girls empowerment, reproductive health, and family planning", and the
GBM's traditional approach to conservation and development.



*-The Nature Conservancy (TNC):*  work with TNC's International Water Policy
program to determine how population and gender issues are associated with
water policy and climate change and water issues, and their MDG links.



*-Institute of Behavioral Sciences (IBS), University of Colorado:*  work
with Dr Lori Hunter and her research team on both internal country level
(Mexico) and international population migration patterns relating to
environmental change.  A focus on gender, vulnerability, and adaptation will
shed light on the potential migratory implications of climate change.
