Green Skill Development Programme (GSDP) - 2019-20

 Green Skill Development Programme (GSDP) for ICFRE Institutes

 In line with the Skill India Mission of Hon’ble Prime Minister, Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEF&CC) utilising the vast network and expertise of ENVIS Hubs/RPs, has taken up an initiative for skill development in the environment and forest sector to enable India's youth to get gainful employment and/or self-employment, called the Green Skill Development Programme (GSDP). The programme endeavours to develop green skilled workers having technical knowledge and commitment to sustainable development, which will help in the attainment of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), National Biodiversity Targets (NBTs), as well as Waste Management Rules (2016).
 
The GSDP training programmes are tailored to suit the specific needs with more emphasis on practical skills. The purpose was to have various GSDP course modules targeting school and collage dropouts across the country through expertise available at ICFRE institutions irrespective of age or profession. The candidates are selected by a committee of experts of the related fields so that the deserving candidates get the opportunity to improve and utilize the skill for livelihood. Reservations for SC/ST/Women participants are also being considered while choosing the trainees for the courses.
 
The ICFRE institutes conducted 12 trainings for F.Y. 2019-20  and total 222 candidates have successfully completed the different course under Green Skill.
