MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY

(DR. MAHESH SHARMA) 

(a) & (b)  Under the ongoing Environmental Information System (ENVIS) Scheme of the Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change, the Green Skill Development Programme (GSDP) was launched in June 2017, on a pilot basis, to skill youth in environment, forest and wildlife sectors and enabling them to be gainfully employed or self-employed. The Pilot offered a Basic Course and an Advanced Course of 3 months’ duration each, to skill the youth as Biodiversity Conservationists and Para-taxonomists, respectively. 94 Trainees successfully completed the Basic Course qualifying as skilled Biodiversity Conservationists and the Advanced Course was completed by 154 candidates. The State-wise details of number of trainees enrolled under the ongoing skilling courses and courses which have been completed during 2018-19 are listed at Annexure I and II respectively. 

(c) to (e) A module on Wetlands Conservation is already included under the Course on Para-taxonomy (including Peoples Bio-diversity Register). The Courses offered under the GSDP focus mainly (more than 50 %) on the practical component of skilling. To provide exposure to the trainees, field visits are also organized. Further, the courses are being offered free of cost to the trainees and a certificate is issued on the successful completion of the Course by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change bearing the logo of the Ministry and the Skill India logo of the Ministry of the Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.
