TerraGreen (TERI's flagship monthly magazine on Environmental issues)
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, 'Understanding Biodiversity: Its Concerns, Management, and Conservation in India', takes into account the developments and approaches that have taken shape in India in the last few years in view of conserving both cultural and biological diversity. The author also elucidates the obstacles in developing effective strategies for conservation and says that while a broadened mandate for expanding conservation support is required, we must utilize this time to introspect our current actions with respect to conservation.
The Feature article titled, 'The Alarming Delhi Smog', highlights that environmental problems in Delhi are a menace to the well-being of its inhabitants as well as the flora and fauna. Air pollution caused due to particulate matter pollution is a recurring problem in the city. The author provides a post analysis of the distressing ‘Delhi smog’ that gripped the entire Delhi-NCR region from October 31 to November 7, 2016. While discussing the causes and implications of this hazard, he suggests some measures to mitigate the threat.
In the Special Report titled, 'Drumstick: A Boon for Healthy Living', the author highlights that a fast growing food tree, drumstick or Moringa oleifera, is planted by people in their backyard or the space available in their kitchen garden. This multipurpose and highly adaptable tree is best known for vegetative propagation, apart from seeds. He takes us through an interesting journey of highlighting the various health benefits of this highly valuable tree that makes it one of the most rewarding gifts of nature for mankind.
