Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology- ENVIS RP

Recognise as International Center for basic and applied research in Meteorology and Atmospheric Science

Environment Information System (ENVIS) Resource Partner (RP), IITM

The Ministry of Environment, Forests & Climate Change (MOEF&CC) is implementing a Central Sector Scheme known as ENVIS (Environmental Information Systems) since 1982 & in the year 2002-2003, IITM became Resource Partner to ENVIS on thematic area, “Atmospheric Pollution and Climate Change”.

The mandate of the ENVIS-IITM centre is to collect, compile and disseminate data on “Atmospheric Pollution and Climate Change”, which will be of immense use to several research organizations and other stakeholders.

In recent few years, understanding the expertise & vast network of ENVIS-HUBs & RPs, MOEF&CC has introduced new programs under ENVIS such as “Green Skill Development Program (GSDP)” & “National Environment Survey (NES)” under ENVIS.

IITM-Green Skill Development Programme (GSDP)

Green Skill Development Program (GSDP) is a visionary program of the Hon'ble Prime Minister implemented by the Environmental Information System Program of the Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEF&CC).

The network of various ENVIS RP's and Hubs has developed around 25 GSDP courses in the environmental protection and forest conservation field. After completing the courses, India's youth will become a strong contender for gainful employment and self-employment.

Most vocational training programmes focus on theoretical or classroom teaching rather than practical skill training. IITM GSDP is a perfect blend of classroom and on-field training by field area experts. Also, participants are encouraged to improve their presentation skills through various activities.

The participants will become skilled personnel and trustworthy stewards of the environment.

The salient features of the IITM- GSDP courses are as follows,

Training by renowned scientists, university professors and industry experts

Field visits and study tours at industry and research centres

Various innovative soft skill development activities

Placement assistance after the completion of the course
