PublicationYear: Building CESVP

ENVIS Centres under the aegis of Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change are in a position to do hand holding and provide technical expertise and other inputs on environment related issues to enable villages under the Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY) to develop into sustainable Model village with requisite funding from Members of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS). The idea behind the SAGY Scheme, which was launched in 2014, is to make at least one village as “Model Village (Adarsh Gram)” from the Constituency of each Member of Parliament (MP), every year and understand the needs of the people, status of resources and formulate a village development plan which is executed with the help of various Administrative Departments. It is a rural development and cleanliness programme, broadly focusing upon the development in the villages which includes social, economic, cultural development and to spread awareness among the people on social mobilization of the village community.

The Adarsh Gram Yojana envisages integrated development of the selected villages across multiple focus areas such as agriculture, health, education, sanitation, environment, livelihoods. The nature of involvement of the ENVIS Centres is aimed at strengthening the village community, including Biodiversity Management Committees (BMCs), Village Forest Committees (VFCs), with the overall objective of facilitating adoption of sustainable best practices. The convergence will occur at the district level, under the District Administrator. The programmes envisaged will be carried out under the guidance, knowledge and involvement of the respective Hon’ble Member of Parliament, with the ultimate objective of creation of a blueprint for holistic development ensuring sustainability in the environmental setup.

The present brochure on CESVP highlights the aims and objectives, approach and focus area of the programme.
