Research Focal Points
My research at CTARA stems from three focal points namely,
Interrelationship between environmental degradation, over exploitation of natural resources, poverty & underdevelopment.
Inadequate governmental measures to integrate environmental concerns in development processes.
Need to institutionalize mechanisms to address environmental concerns at all levels of government including local self government while developing the capacity to plan and execute.
Most of my research work has been in these focal area. A lot of work in the first research foci was carried out at EMPRI and KSPCB, More indepth understanding of the research areas has been carried out through the M.Tech, B.Tech and PhD students at CTARA. Interactions /associations with many governmental agencies as well as private players / industries have also added to the research
