CSE WASHINGTON

AIMS
Programmes in environmental awareness in USA

CSE, USA is proposing to undertake programmes of environmental awareness in the United States, specifically with Southern perspectives, to create a better understanding amongst the citizens of the US about crucial linkages between environment and development. The Centre will also put forward positions on global environmental governance, initiate debates on models of participatory environmental management and on economic mechanisms to improve environmental management.

Given the threat to the natural systems of the world, and the development of environmental treaties as a response to this crisis, the Centre for Science and Environment in Washington, DC hopes to play a unique role in highlighting and creating an understanding of the needs of developing countries to incorporate them into ongoing negotiations.

Developing countries are still in the process of evolving appropriate solutions to handle their environmental problems. They need to be informed accurately and speedily about latest developments in relevant areas in the West so that their responses can benefit from the lessons learnt in the West. The Centre will play the role of an information facilitator enabling information flows to the developed world from the Third World and vice-versa.

Long Term Objectives

1. To work towards a global consensus on environmental issues through policy     research; commissioning papers on issues such as climate change,     biotechnology, international trade, etc.;

2. Inform and create an understanding amongst the US public about global     environmental issues and their interface with economic development by     dissemination of information through newsletters, books, periodicals, exhibitions;

3. Interact with and educate the US public on Southern perspectives on global     environmental issues by conducting briefing workshops, training seminars etc.

To facilitate interaction with US non-governmental organisations and the public, a new organisation called the Centre for Science and Environment, has been registered in Washington, DC. This organisation will undertake all environmental awareness activities that are listed in the proposal.
