Malda to set maiden national example for primary solid waste management and rural water supply

December 8 @ 11:29 am


Sustainability has been defined in many ways but one of the most basic is “the capacity to endure”. The biggest challenge to this capacity is the fact that the Earth has finite resources but an indefinitely growing population. By the year 2050, there will be over nine billion people on Earth whose livelihood will depend on these finite resources. This present us with a situation where we need to rethink and rework on how
to turn around the rate of degradation and depletion of the ecosystem and conserve and maintain the balance between supply from the nature and consumption by mankind. In order to bring this turn around we need to seek inspiration from everyday life, from the simple act of closing the tap properly to control wastage of water to a more complex and dynamic process of developing more sustainable products and adopting more sustainable production and consumption practices. However, the inspiration that we seek will be fructified and effective only when it leads to innovative ways of doing things.
