HICAP Grant Programme for Journalists Working on Climate Related Issues

Green Jobs
The Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP) is a major initiative  of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) for promoting adaptation to climate change through applied and basic research programmes. HICAP focuses on five sub-basins of major Himalayan river systems: two sub-basins of the Brahmaputra and one each of the Indus, Ganges, and Salween-Mekong. HICAP is of the strong belief that journalists in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region are often in need of resources (space, time, and means) to support investigative stories on the impacts of climate change and other drivers of change. Consequently, the HICAP grant programme seeks to encourage journalists from the Hindu Kush Himalayan region to report on climate change across the five sub-basins:

CSE Announces Twelfth Media Fellowship on Water Bodies in India: Public Space, Private Design

Green Jobs
After land, our water bodies are now facing tremendous stress: industries, urban 'development', increasing population, imperfect legislation, scores of wetlands, lakes, rivers and waterways are threatened by such projects and pressures. On one hand, cities across India struggle to meet the insatiable water demands of their people; on the other, real estate and industry are eyeing wetlands and water bodies, while regulators look the other way. According to the Directory of Asian Wetlands (1989), India has 27,403 wetlands,covering an estimated area of 4.1 million hectare. A survey by the Wildlife Institute of India (WII) says that they are disappearing at a rate of 2 to 3% every year. Some of the recent cases of transgression include the Nirma cememt factory in Bhavnagar, Guja...

CSE Announces Media Fellowship: Justice at Bay, The Forest Rights

Green Jobs
Millions of people are linked to forests, some derive their livelihoods from them, others call them home. The forests, however, are subjected to continuous exploitation due to varied reasons beyond the realm of sustainance, rendering the forest dwellers most vulnerable. To protect these communities against harassment, eviction, displacement and encroachment, the Forest Rights Act was introduced in December 2006. For the first time in history, these villagers were given legal rights to their homeland and awarded the responsibility of managing the forests and forest resources. Industry and the state, however, continue to have a vested interest in forests. Corporates entice the state with their ambitious proposals and dreams of development, fell the forests, dig out the minera...

..and stop the corruption, and incompetence and what not. The last of the 'Shera' is at stake. It is no longer difficult to understand why big projects like the ones meant to save the tiger don't really work effectively. I am shocked by the collapse of a foot over bridge just about a week before the Commonwealth Games. I am angry at all those who are responsible for the construction of the games infrastructure including this specific foot over bridge. What angers me even more is the explanation that ‘it was a loose screw that caused it’. I am resentful of all those people who are associated with the Games infrastructure, those who ‘made’ the money and those who ‘gave’ the money to cut corners in the quality of construction. I am resentful of all those who were not able to complete the a
