Environmentalists call for integrated study of Ganga River Basin 26.2.2017 DNA: Top News
Environment activists and water experts have called for an integrated and holistic study on the status of Ganga River Basin -- from its origin at Gomukh to Gangasagar, where it falls in the Bay of Bengal -- so that measures c​an​ be taken to protect and conserve the ancient holy river. The experts were discussing various concerns facing River Ganga and the possible solutions for them, at a two-day International conference on “Incessant Ganga” organised by Bihar government, which kicked off in Patna on Saturday. Expressing concern over the rights of the river, author and environmentalist Vandana Shiva said an ecological perspective was required to save the river that was being affected by climate changes, inorganic farming and development in the hills. “An integrated study would tell us better about what problems are being faced where, which could help in taking up an organised campaign to save the river,” she said. Gandhian environmentalist and Chipko Movement founder Chandi Prasad Bhatt said Ganga ...

China launches TanSat satellite to monitor global carbon emissions 22.12.2016 DNA: Urban Tales
China today launched a global carbon dioxide monitoring satellite to understand climate change, hours after it lifted nearly a week-long red alert for the worst smog that engulfed about 40 cities in the country. The 620-kg satellite TanSat was put into orbit by Long March-2D rocket from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre in northwest China's Gobi Desert early this morning, state-run Xinhua news agency reported. This was the 243rd mission of the Long March series rockets. Besides TanSat, the rocket also carried a high-resolution micro-nano satellite and two spectrum micro-nano satellites for agricultural and forestry monitoring. China is the third country after Japan and the US to monitor greenhouse gases through its own satellite. The satellite was sent into a sun-synchronous orbit about 700 km above the earth and will monitor the concentration, distribution and flow of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere, Yin Zengshan, chief designer of TanSat at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) microsatellite ...

Group fights gender gap in water use in Rajasthan 6.12.2016 DNA: India
The mores of a patriarchal society make themselves evident in a number of ways —from rules about the conduct of women to gender imbalance in boardrooms. Women in Rajasthan, however, are battling a very different set of problems, one that concerns the use of water. A precious commodity in the desert state, water is first given to the men in the family to use, followed by household chores, even though it’s mostly women who fetch it after walking for kilometres. So much so that some women have to go without a bath in the arid region for days on end. Centre for Social Research (CSR), a non-profit organisation from Delhi, has been attempting to change that dynamic through its Water Conservation and Climate Change Training Programme for rural Rajasthan. The programme is being conducted across different villages in Sanganer, Bhimwal, and Sirohi, among other areas. The programme targets all orders of the hierarchy — from housewives to women representatives, including panches and councillors — to spread awareness ...
