Book Details

TerraGreen is TERI's flagship magazine that deals with issues related to sustainable development, environment, and energy. In a world standing on the brink of a major ecological disaster, TG hopes to be the ray of light that lights up the road ahead.

The Cover Story titled, 'Manual Scavenging in India: A National Scourge',  gives a perspective on the history, caste politics, and present status of manual scavengers in India. The author further discusses legal provisions and the complex web of social exclusion and poorly implemented schemes which allows the practice to continue and some possible recourses to give a life of dignity to those involved in manual scavenging in India. 

In the Feature article titled, 'GM Foods: A Healthy Choice or a Health Hazard?' the author says genetically modified foods (GM foods) are foods produced from organisms that have had changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering. But, she ponders that what exactly are these GM foods? How are they different from any other category of food? Are they useful or just another product that is available in the market? Should one use these products or refrain from doing so? These are some of the questions whose answers the author tries to find in this article.

In the Special Report titled, 'Growing Cotton Organically: Brings MP Farmers Rich Harvest'  the author talks about farmers in Chhindwara district in Madhya Pradesh who have become convinced to take up growing cotton the organic way as the production costs are economical and the financial returns better than cultivating this crop the customary way.
