TerraGreen (TERI's flagship monthly magazine on Environmental issues)

Magazines 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, 'Environmental Impacts on Epidemics: A Case Study of Dengue', highlights that the last few years have seen particularly severe dengue epidemics in metropolitan cities of India with several deaths due to the different strains of dengue. The author  discusses the spread and factors responsible for rising cases of dengue in India. She highlights that climate change in the form of vagaries in weather patterns (particularly monsoon) have a definite role in the increasing prevalence of dengue as conditions become ideal for the breeding of disease vectors during the post-monsoon period resulting in epidemics in urban and peri-urban areas. 

The Feature article titled, 'Citizen Science: Promoting Active Citizenship', highlights that citizen science is defined as scientific work undertaken by the members of the general public, often in collaboration with or under the direction of professional scientists and scientific institutions. Studies have shown that citizen science has a major impact in research related to biology, conservation, and ecology. The author further says that citizen science is a discipline in its own right and has promoted active citizenship around the globe. She also feels that the efforts to consolidate and strengthen citizen science could help support and upscale projects for science, society, education, and environmental policymaking. 

In the Special Report titled, Human–Animal Conflict in Urban Areas: Need for More Effective Solutions , the author has highlighted the grave situation of man–animal conflict in the urban areas of India and points out that we all must join hands on this serious issue and think beyond translocation, re-location, and sterilization of the stray animals as these measures have neither proved to be effective in controlling the population of these animals nor the menace.
