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.

The Northeast region of India is connected to the rest of the India via a narrow strip of land called the Silliguri Corridor or ‘Chicken’s Neck’. It consists of the seven sister states namely Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Mizorum, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Tripura and the Himalayan state of Sikkim [Figure (1)]. As per the 2011 census, the total population of this region is 455,87,982, which is 4% of the total population of India. The region occupies 8% India's landmass. Table (1) shows some facts about states in this region.

The catastrophe at Uttarakhand in June 2013, was a hot topic of discussion for many of us across the country, but only those who live in the Himalayan states understand the significance and impact it has on their lives. Poor policies and governance were the root cause; much more than heavy rains. Often, these policies are made by people who do not have a proper understanding of the region and its local traditions.

If you work or live in the Himalayas, here is your chance to make your voice heard and have your experience count.
