ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION HAZARDOUS HEALTH AND ECONOMIC IMPACTS

Environmental Pollution is a global problem causing grave concerns worldwide, due to its severe and adverse long term consequences.

Air and water pollution, lack of clean drinking water, unsafe waste disposal, land degradation and the exposure to agro-industrial chemicals are among the leading environmental issues faced by the country. All of these hazards are preventable, often through simple and cost effective interventions. There is a need to formulate sound policies based on evidence, extensive thought process and consultation with all stakeholders, to effectively monitor and control environmental degradation and climate change this backdrop Executive Development
Institute has designed a 3-days course on “Environmental Pollution – Hazardous Health and Economic Impacts” to be held from 11th to 13″ February, 2019.
