Environment Protection - A Reality Check

Dr Jurgen Bischoff, director of ASEM, said the Eco-City programme which is being jointly implemented with the Ministry of Environment and Forests is already under way in the municipalities of Kottayam (Kerala), Vrindavan (UP), Ujjain (MP), Tirupati (AP) and Puri (Orissa).

“The reasons for launching this programme in cities with tourist or business interests”, he said, “is because they have national prominence and fund raising for additional projects becomes easier”.
