New Delhi, August 11, 2008: “If this is the age of environment, then information will be the key to change – in our lifestyle, in policy and in practice – and this we have conceived of the India Environment Portal”, says Sam Pitroda, chair of the National Knowledge Commission (NKC).

The portal, is a one-stop shop for all that you want to know about environment and development issues.

“Our politics is overt: to build open, networked and informed societies, who can use knowledge to make change. This is why we have also built the India Environment Portal on an open-source platform and made proprietary information held by us available and open” explains Sunita Narain, director of the Centre for Science and Environment, the organization, which has initiated the Portal.
