  • In India, a huge gap exists between the demand and supply of skill sets, both cognitive and practical, at various levels in the environment and forest sectors. Green skills, when compared to most vocational training programmes (focus on mechanical/technical skills rather than ‘soft’ or ‘green’ skills) contribute to preserving or restoring environmental quality for sustainable future and include jobs that protect ecosystems and biodiversity, reduce energy and minimize waste and pollution.
  • By realizing the demand for green skilled youth, the Green Skill Development Programme (GSDP) has been conceptualized and developed by Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC), Government of India (GoI) under ENVIS (Environment Information System), a Central Sector Scheme implemented since 1982-83.
  • GSDP was launched as pilot project in 2017 by MoEFCC, GoI aiming to skill & create India’s ‘GREEN’ workforce & enhance employability of skilled youth in environment/forest sectors. It covers diverse fields such as pollution monitoring, waste management, sewage treatment plant, effluent treatment plants etc.
  • Under GSDP the skill development courses comply with National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF) of National Skill Development Agency (NSDA).
  • The focus is on skilling school pass/dropouts from school at the secondary stage itself.  Further, the advanced courses are designed and being conducted for graduate level students also.
  • The Ministry has also held deliberations with various stakeholders and welcomes any collaboration/participation/partnership in the programme from national and international organizations/institutes/agencies etc to strengthen the GSDP network. 
  • Punjab State Council for Science and Technology is implementing GSDP in Punjab under ENVIS scheme, which is operational since 2002 as a node on 'State Environment Issues' under the World Bank Assisted Project of MoEFCC,GoI. The Node was further upgraded to ENVIS Centre in 2005 since then, the ENVIS Centre is working on ’Status of Environment & Related Issues’.
  • Further, under the 12th Five Year Plan, the scope of ENVIS scheme has been expanded and renamed as ENVIS Hub with inclusion of implementation of GSDP in Punjab.
  • Under GSDP, Punjab ENVIS Hub has received sanction from Ministry to conduct two certificate courses viz. Pollution Monitoring & Waste Management.
  • ENVIS Hub, PSCST is conducting these courses in collaboration with Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Ropar at IIT Ropar.
