Today, 22 years ago the Government of Gujarat set up an Ecology Commission for the State of Gujarat known today as Gujarat Ecology Commission (GEC). The last two decades has seen GEC grow as an organization from advocating & promoting ecological sustainability and environmental conservation to branching out into new directions such as Coastal Zone Management.
Our Wetland and Pond Management Training campaign for rural communities and Biomedical Waste Management training for public health officials were the highlights of this year. Through this training, we reached out to thousands of beneficiaries communicating to them the importance of natural resource management and conservation, good public health and environmental sustainability at large. The ICZM project is progressing well empowering beneficiaries with infrastructure in terms of water security, livelihood security as well as environmental conservation.
It is our endeavour to progress with the same spirit in the coming years. Thank you all for supporting us in various ways
