Topic: Studies to develop various environmental indices
Project Summary : Environmental indices are a combination of multiple sources of information, mostly in form of parameters, about an environmental system. They provide an overall picture of the environment and can also be used to compare similar environmental systems. However, development of these environmental indices requires careful consideration of individual environmental indicators. Examples of environmental indices to be developed could include Air quality index, Carbon footprints , Rural Environment Index, CPRI, Global warming Index.
Objectives of the study
a) To provide substantial conceptual framework for development of the Index.
b) To work out the methodology for developing an indicator on the basis of factors identified.
c) To validated the Index so developed with existing database or primary data.
d) To arrive at the final environmental Index
