Hazardous Waste

Roundtable Meeting on Delhi Hotspots 

Toxics Link’s new report 'On the Edge' is first of its kind study in Delhi, mapping the city’s polluting centres. The report identifies sites which are regularly contaminating the city’s environment by releasing toxic pollutants and thereby creating health concerns. The study points out at the urgent need to take stock of the city’s environmental condition, to look into the future and assess the various policy options for consideration.

Toxics Link would like to share the report with key stakeholders and also feels the need to facilitate a discussion among various stakeholders to deliberate upon the findings. It would also help in ascertaining if there is an urgent need to look at the current activities in any of these sites. With this objective, we are organizing a roundtable meeting on 25th September, 2014 at India Islamic Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi.
