      Conference on pollution concludes

      [ Saturday, December 03, 2005 02:18:12 am TIMES NEWS NETWORK ]


      LUCKNOW: The third International Conference on Plants and
      Environmental Pollution (ICPEP), organised by National Botanical
      Research Institute (NBRI) in association with Indian Society of
      Environmental Botanists (ISEB), ended here on Friday.

      Attended by around 400 delegates from nearly 35 countries including
      European and SAARC nations, the conference concluded with a consensus
      on protecting the environment.

      Environmental degeneration, particularly the climatic change, is now
      beginning to show its effect, several scientists opined.

      The melting of glaciers on the one hand and now the reported weakening
      of the Gulf stream in North America on the other, proves the point,
      they said.

      Hence there is an urgent need to have a multidisciplinary approach to
      tackle the problem, they added.

      For Sujatha, a scientist at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL)
      Hyderabad, the realisation was a driving force. A specialist in
      geo-chemistry, she was invited to attended the conference.

      Claiming that the conference was a successful event as it brought to
      the fore discussions on over a dozen topics, director of NBRI, P
      Pushpangadan, hailed the efforts of KJ Ahmad, secretary, ISEB for
      organising the event.

      Pushpangadan later read out the message of union minister for science
      and technology, Kapil Sibal, hailing the event.

      For KJ Ahmad, it was more than a complement, as the society of which
      he is secretary now, will be completing its 11 years of existence on
      Saturday.

      The conference, which was earlier expected to be held in Nepal, was
      shifted to NBRI here.

      Informing this, SB Sahani, the founder of ISEB, reiterated that
      conferences like these which highlight major environmental issues,
      should be held in developing countries.
