Abstract: The need for imparting environmental education in school students has been well understood in Delhi, India and efforts have been made to incorporate environmental education (EE) in the curriculum. At the same time, increasing interest in the protection and conservation of environment, nature and natural resources has led to the initiation and adoption of several campaigns, programmes and projects by various schools. Consequently, the integration of EE in the curriculum as well as through extra-curricular activities is exposing the school students to contemporary environmental challenges and their solutions. This research work is an attempt at exploring the various measures being taken to promote environmental awareness and create better attitude towards the environment in the schools in Delhi, India.

Keywords: environmental education, school level, education policy, India.

Smart City for a Sustainable Future: Is Delhi Ready?

First Author Affiliation: Department of Economics, Indraprastha College for Women, University of Delhi; Second Author Affiliation: Malihabad Block Administration (District Lucknow), Government of Uttar Pradesh, India.

 

Abstract: Cities are the geographic nodes around which people gather for their livelihood activities. Various factors like resources, technology, education, medical innovations and environmental developments have shaped modern cities. However, with rapid urbanization and population growth, many cities are facing the problems of degradation, pollution, diseases and a poor quality of life. The major challenges before the urban growth centers have necessitated the formation of smart cities. Sustainable future of a city lies in the development of transport, infrastructure, environment, energy, ICT and people with a sustainability approach. The Government of India has launched a scheme to create hundred smart cities across the country, among which the National Capital of Delhi is a frontrunner. This paper attempts to study the existing infrastructure and facilities in Delhi in order to assess its readiness to be a smart city. It also attempts to analyze the citizens’ perception about Delhi as a smart city through a primary survey. Although there are limitations in the current scenario of economic and environmental performances and people’s perceptions, Delhi makes a strong case for becoming a smart city.

Keywords: smart city, urban infrastructure, Delhi, sustainable development.

Implication of Household Use of R.O. Devices for Delhi’s Urban Water Scenario

Author Affiliation: Department of Environmental Studies, Indraprastha College for Women, University of Delhi.

 

Abstract: The present research contribution attempts to study the increasing dependency of households in Delhi on R.O. devices and brings forward its implications on Delhi’s urban water scenario. The research focuses on five colonies in Delhi where preliminary water quality assessment was carried out so as to conduct a need assessment of installing R.O. devices versus the actual installation of these devices in individual households. Reverse osmosis is essentially a technique to reduce the hardness of water and the process involves de-mineralization or de-ionization of water by pushing it under pressure through a semi-permeable membrane. Consequently, an R.O. device is effective in households receiving water with high Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). However, an R.O. is neither required nor effective in households receiving water with low TDS, which were noted in the study area. This is because R.O. devices are not an effective method against biological impurities. Despite this limitation, over 78% of the households in the study area were found to rely on R.O. devices as a coping strategy against impaired municipal water supply. While some of these R.O. devices are also fitted with UV-filters (which help address biological impurities in water), the large-scale use of R.O. devices in households that do not require this technology poses a serious threat to urban water sustainability in Delhi.

Keywords: urban water, water supply, Delhi, R.O., water management.

A Wetland and a Lifeline: the Importance of Loktak Lake for Manipur, India

Author Affiliation: Shri Ram College of Commerce, University of Delhi.

 

Abstract: Wetlands are highly productive ecosystems which provide multiple-value ecosystem services. The Loktak Lake wetland is located in the Bishnupur district of the Indian state of Manipur, and is the largest freshwater wetland in Northeast India. The lake is used extensively by local people as a source of water for irrigation and domestic use and is an important wintering and staging area for water birds, particularly ducks. The Loktak Lake has a socioeconomic and cultural relationship with the people of Manipur. However, of late, the impacts of increase in population, urbanisation and the rapid pace of development have started being felt on Loktak Lake. The once over 266 sq. km large Loktak Lake is now showing signs of shrinking and reduction in wetland spread. The lake had a seasonal and pulsating characteristic which kept it clean and healthy. However, changes in its hydrology due to regulation of water flow for development purpose are now showing a detrimental effect on the health of this wetland. The following article is an attempt at putting greater focus on the lifeline of Manipur, the Loktak Lake and a floating island paradise where tourism is wanting.

Keywords: Loktak Lake, wetland, ecosystem services, Manipur.

SAR and Mobile Phone Radiation Hazard. How Aware are College Students in Delhi?

Author Affiliation: Department of Computer Science, Indraprastha College for Women, University of Delhi.

 

Abstract: Mobile phones have become the most common gadget in the world today and are found in the hands of students most of the time. With advancement in mobile technology, usage of mobile phones has increased significantly. Mobile phone functioning uses electromagnetic radiation in the microwave range, which may be harmful to human health. Research has focused on this aspect since the invention of mobile phones and there seems to be a consensus that mobile phone radiations have an impact on human beings. However, no concrete scientific assessment of the impact of mobile phone radiation (MPR) on human beings has been made available. As a result, impact of MPR on human health is a research area requiring greater investigation. The following research contribution attempts to assess the awareness of undergraduate student community about radiation threat posed by the usage of mobile phones. We find that while students are concerned about various specifications of their mobile phones, the knowledge and awareness about MPRs is wanting.

Keywords: mobile phone radiation, human health, student community.
