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.

In the cover story titled, 'Conservation of Mangrove Forests for Fighting Coastal Disasters and Carbon Emissions', the authors say that it was only after the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami in 2004, and many other cyclones that hit coastal regions of the world in the previous years that the conservation of mangrove forests gained importance. Mangrove plantations are not just a wall against disasters, but also hold socio-economic importance, for people dependent on these for their livelihood. The article looks at how mangroves—the world’s most productive ecosystems—need to be conserved.

In the special report titled, 'Rambling Exploitation of Nandhor Valley: Time to Set the Preferences Right', the author discusses that the scenic Nandhor Valley is located at the heart of the Terai Arc Landscape in Uttarakhand. But, the last two decades have not been good for the valley. The author points out in this article that River Nandhor and valley are being exploited round the year for petty gains through sand mining and illegal excavation, and now time is ripe  to end the perverted practices. Squandering of government funds, in the name of conservation, must also be stopped.

The feature article titled, 'Are Our Coasts Up for Sale?' highlights that India’s coastal regulation norms are set for a revision under the draft ‘Marine and Coastal Regulation Zone (MCRZ) Notification 2017’.  The draft, as reported, proposes to shrink the no-development zone in rural coastal areas from 200 m from the high tide line to 50 m. The author discusses the implications of these revisions on coastal populations and livelihoods while raising a pertinent question: have we put our coasts up for sale in the quest for development?
