Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM) has introduced a new concept of applied training course in the field of environment.

The module is called the green skill development program (GSDP). Green skills contribute to preserving or restoring environmental quality for sustainable future and include jobs that protect ecosystems and biodiversity, reduce energy and minimize waste and pollution.

The IITM course will involve 60 participants from across the country in the age group of 20-60 years. The participants will get hands-on training for 25-45 days in air and water pollution as well as the emission inventory of Pollutants.

On completion of the training module, they will receive a certificate from the ministry of environment, forest and climate change.

IITM sources said the GSDP project is a priority scheme of the Union government. It will help the unemployed and not very highly educated candidates learn the skills to learn practical work. They will also be trained to monitor and measure air pollution based on key field characteristics of am area and conduct survey.

The GSDP course includes process-based green skills such as monitoring and managing activities as part of environmental management.

Sources in the institute said the trainees will collect baseline data concerning the emission sectors such as transport, biofuel and suspended dust. They will also get figures and numbers of pollution emitting sources.

These courses will help them learn the effects of pollution on human health, major environmental issues, community conservation and ways to formulate mitigation strategies.
