The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is organizing a four days training on “Urban Wetlands Management – towards water and environment sustainability” from 25 to 28 September, 2018. Brochure of the training programme has been attached for your perusal.

Urban wetlands have been recognized globally as a crucial natural feature for Sustainable Urban Development. However, they are getting polluted at an unprecedented rate or encroached due to unplanned urban development contributing reasons for recent urban floods and not much has been done to conserve and manage them. Understanding the need of building capacity of stakeholders for creating water resilient cities, CSE is organising this training at our training campus of Anil Agrawal Environment Training Institute (AAETI) that is a state of art residential training institute at Nimli, Rajasthan, India. The 10 acre green campus is located at amid Aravali hills at a distance of around 110 km from Delhi, which is a two hour drive from Delhi airport.

The aim of the training is to develop capacity of various stakeholders on conservation, restoration, planning and management of wetlands for water and environmental sustainability in urban areas. The training will focus on understanding of wetlands as a source of urban water supply, groundwater recharge and wastewater treatment. It will discuss the multidisciplinary approaches for planning and management of wetlands that will include catchment level management, in-situ management, stakeholder involvement, designing of constructed wetlands for maintenance and monitoring of these water bodies.
