The Indian Environmental Protection Act, 1986, states that the term ‘environment’ includes water, air and land and the inter-relationship which exists among and between water, air and land, and human beings, other living creatures, plants, micro-organisms and property. The word ‘inter-relationship’ plays a key role in our understanding of the environment.
This blog is a continuation of the ‘environmental crime: a brief introduction’ blog and is aimed at helping the reader understand the limitations of how environmental crime data in India is compiled.

#EcosystemRestoration is the process of reversing the degradation of ecosystems, such as landscapes, lakes and oceans to regain their ecological functionality. One way to do this is by keeping fossil fuels in the ground and embracing clean energy. #WorldEnvironmentDay
This documentary seeks to educate local communities and stakeholders on the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process - as per EIA Notification 2006 issued by Ministry of Environment Forest & Climate Change (MoEF & CC). The EIA notification is applicable to 39 industrial activities. This documentary focuses on a specific example of thermal power plant to provide context and setting for explaining the EIA process.
