While India continues to be besieged by waste, a new book on waste management looks at how a minimal waste society can be created.

When it comes to managing huge piles of waste, Indian metros have a monumental task in hand. As per 2011 figures, Delhi is the biggest waste generator with 6800 tonnes of waste being produced daily. Lessons from other countries show that these mountains of waste will only grow bigger as India gets richer. And with this, how we manage our waste is going to change as well.

I am involved in the implementation of the Wetland Conservation Programme. This programme started in 2007 and aims at protecting the Vembanad lake ecosystem, promoting conservation and sustainable use and protecting livelihoods. It also aims at educating stakeholders and creating awareness among the lakeside residents, interested citizens and policy makers about the qualitative deterioration of the lake water. This programme is being implemented in the southern part of the lake beyond Thannermukkom barrage where water pollution issues are very severe.
