E-waste recyclers’ certification in India
Worldwide 41.8 million tonne of total e-waste was generated in the year 2014, which is expected to rise by 76% in next 15 years (i.e. in 2030). India stood at fifth spot globally with 1.6 million tonne (or 1.6 kg/person) of e-waste generated in 2014 which rose by 69 per cent and became 2.7 Mt in year 2015. Recycling of e-waste is thus one of the fundamental ways of tackling the e-waste problem. India has 149 registered units of dismantler/recyclers have a total capacity of 0.46 MTA as on 14th December 2015. However, of the total e-waste generated in India, a large quantity of e-waste is recycled by informal sector where people are exposed to significant health risks.

INDCs – Snippets post Lima
In order to keep the global temperature rise from escalating more than 2°C, all the 196 independent countries in the world would assemble in the forthcoming COP 21 at Paris to agree on their climate action plans. Till date there are only 29 submissions from 56 countries (out of 196 countries in the world) to the UNFCCC’s INDCs portal totaling 58.5% of the global emissions from these submitted INDCs. Emissions reduction pledges made so far fall short of what’s required to ward off dangerous climate change. Although the gap can be expected to lessen as more INDCs are submitted. But it's time for countries to take a hard look at global goals and play their part well.
