Building sense : Beyond the green facade of sustainable habitat

Regular Price: Rs 950.00

Special Price: Rs 712.00

India is in a frenzy of construction. Buildings, townships and housing complexes are coming up at break-neck speed – and we’re still not there yet: a staggering two thirds of the buildings that will stand in India in 2030 are yet to be built!

How we choose to design these buildings and live can have a profound impact on our resource use and environment. We have begun setting the ‘green’ terms for construction and operation of buildings in India, but it remains a relatively new area of governance.

India needs appropriate regulations to benchmark energy and water use, minimise waste, and develop monitoring and compliance strategies. Also needed is a deeper public understanding of what works and what does not.

Bhopal Gas Tragedy After 30 Years
Rs 400.00
Add to Cart
On the intervening night of December 2-3, 1984, methyl isocyanate gas leaking from Union Carbide’s factory in Bhopal claimed more than 5,000 lives. More than half a million people still suffer the side effects of the exposure to the gas; the soil and groundwater have been contaminated and toxicity has crossed over to the second and third generations. This book describes the criminal negligence, incompetent governance and the apathy towards victims that have made Bhopal a continuing disaster. It gives voice to people’s anguish and is also a testimony to the Centre for Science and Environment’s and Down To Earth’s long engagement with Bhopal. This book argues that India cannot afford to let Bhopal fade from public memory and concludes with a blueprint to avoid a similar tragedy.

Editors: Sunita Narain, Chandra Bhushan, Richard Mahapatra, Vibha Varshney, Archana Yadav, Kaushik Das Gupta, Aruna P Sharma

Special Price: Rs 517.00

Add to Cart
Adaptation is necessary to manage the risks posed by climate change. Rising to the Call is a collection of stories from all over India about the nature of extreme weather events experienced, how communities are responding and successful adaptation practices emerging out of these experiences. It studies the impacts and replicability of the different approaches to adaptation and brings out valuable insights for developing countries in the region and beyond.

Five regions are considered: The Indian Himalayan region, the Indo-Gangetic plain, the desert region, central and peninsular India, and coasts and islands. Case studies highlight crop diversification, payment for eco-system services, flood-proof housing, restoration of watersheds, protection of mangroves, groundwater management, weather forecasting and advisory services, flood-resistant rice, and more.

This book is a first-of-its kind that looks at adaptation with an ear to the ground. It looks into why some actions worked, the challenges and enabling conditions.

Environmental History Reader

Regular Price: Rs 450.00

Special Price: Rs 337.00

Add to Cart
The understanding of our ecosystem would be incomplete without understanding its past. Hence CSE’s latest book is invaluable as it helps you figure out some present day environmental concerns from a historical perspective.

The past bears heavily on our forests, villages, cities, even air, water and the atmosphere. Current environmental concerns — climate change, conservation and pollution — bear the imprint of the past.

It takes us to early debates on pollution, patents and industrialisation. It highlights instances of biopiracy and bioterrorism when these words had not found a place in the English dictionary and shows how ecology played a role in the rise and fall of ancient civilisations. It reveals the environmental underpinnings of warfare, diplomacy, even music and celebration.

Green rating of coal-based power plants

Coal plays a critical role in our energy mix,
providing over 70 per cent of India’s electricity
supply. It is likely to remain a mainstay for several more years, given India’s immense power needs and domestic availability of coal.

But coal is also the dirtiest of all fossil fuels.
It burns to produce emissions that are a leading anthropogenic source of global warming, acid rain, smog and toxic air and water.

We need to use coal efficiently to reduce its
environmental costs. CSE’s Green Rating Project analysis of India’s coal-based power sector paints a sobering picture but also offers recommendations for improving the environmental and social performance of this important sector.
