In India power is the main source of energy for development of many industries which utilize electricity, petroleum fuel but at certain point of time in future this fuel can be extinct so there is a need to preserve the energy resources. Therefore an alternative utilization & research is going on for preserving the energy.
SAHASH is promoting the masses to conserve electricity and minimize the use of petroleum products. We are also promoting the cultivation of bio-fuel plant such as sanitaria(Redingote) in the wasteland. Different awareness programs have been set up to increase the awareness regarding the efficient utilization of energy. We promote the use of CFL lamps & solar equipments. For pollution control use of CNG fuel, compliance of PUC for automobile and promoting use of flash, use jute bags instead of plastic bags, conservation of kitchen waste to compost through vermiculture.
Without water life is not possible so we cannot afford to waste water resources, hence water conservation is very essential. Due to water crises some dry and despairing facts stare India in the face. The present average soil loss in the country is all-out 16.35 %per hectare per year. Nearly 67% of the cultivated area in the country faces severe moisture stress of 15 to 8 months a year. Crop production is very low in dry lands.
SAHASH with panchayats/other NGO likely to constitutes a water user groups and train them to plan and build water harvesting structures like contour bounds, percolation tanks and farm ponds to achieve water conservation and soil enrichment
Nature is necessity, wilderness is freedom and parks are fountains of life. The environment is always a source of solace, inspiration & delight
Forest is necessary for our life. Due to continuous deforestation there has been increase in the Green house gases which causes melting of polar ice and hence jeopardizing the the life of polar bears. Over the past 150 years deforestation has contributed to the increase of contiguous gases like CO2 and CO in the atmosphere that very is dangerous for the mankind as well as for the animals. It is also a significant driving force behind the loss of genes, species and critical ecosystem services green house gases are emitted by virtually all economic sectors including residential and commercial energy use, industrial processes, electricity, generation, agriculture and forestry carbon dioxide emissions from coal combustion in developing countries of Asia is expect to grow by a whooping 157% from 1990 level by 2015. Total 55% national emissions of CO2 come from energy sector & 34% from agriculture sector.
Awareness Steps taken by SAHASH
1. Strategy attempts to conserve the existing of carbon storage capacity of forests by halting/slowing draw forests deforestation.
2. Forestation of non forest lands and agro forestry on crop and pasture land.
3. Attempts taken for replacement of fossil fuels by renewable fuel wood or other biomass products.
4. Replacing open pit method of manure treatment with small scale digester.
5. Using improved paddy varieties and draining fields frequently and encouraging cultivation of rice varieties that emit less CH4 per unit of output.
6. Improve application efficiency of nitrogenous fertilizers.
7. We promote plantation of neem, bamboo, bio fuel plant, medicated plant.
