The J & K administration is trying to follow an integrated approach to reduce pollution and save the environment.
Recently on World Environment Day LG Manoj Sinha said that his administration is committed to protect the environment and natural resources.
He suggested creating a mechanism to generate employment opportunities from such transformation.
Speaking on the successful conduct of G20 Tourism Meet in Jammu Kashmir, he said the historic event has firmly placed the UT in the international tourism map.
Our natural heritage of snow-capped mountains, magnificent peaks, rich forests, picturesque alpine meadows, serene lakes and streams needs to be protected from the threats of climate change
We are truly fortunate that nature has selflessly given us everything that is necessary for a better life and it is our bounden duty to show sensitivity towards nature and make efforts to conserve natural resources.
He highlighted the efforts of the central government and the UT Administration to reduce the impact of plastic pollution.
Cohesive efforts in urban development and planning policies are determining the future of our cities. In the last three years, there has been a rapid increase in awareness about the environment, especially among the youth.
