Environmental Status Report 2012-13: Pimpri Chinchwad city

Environmental Status Report (ESR) of a city acts as an impact assessment tool, which must be strategic in nature and should have an objective of facilitating environmental integration and the assessment of the opportunities and risks of strategic actions. Success of any municipal project is strongly linked to the formulation of policies, planning and deliberate efforts to bring about the change in the society. Policies developed in the context of planning are not intended to find out what has happened in the past rather aims to plan and steer actions that make possible routes towards a sustainable future. Environmental Status Report will emerge as a more comprehensive document to play a vital role in aligning developmental policies in line with the environment. Maharashtra Pollution Control Board has developed a common format for the ESR along with the framework indicators for assessment and comparison of environmental performance of the cities across Maharashtra State. Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation has made an effort to structure the ESR using Environmental Media Framework Methodology in which information is categorized based on environmental media like social environment, air, water, solid waste etc.
