INMS at the World Environment Day 2018, New Delhi
On 4th of June, 2018, as part of the World Environment Day 2018, a panel discussion was chaired by Prof. Mark Sutton, director of INMS, titled "Nitrogen: Joining Up for a Cleaner Environment".
The session concluded with the following:
- More scientific evidence is needed for better understanding of the scale of the impacts of nitrogen pollution.
- Evidences should be translated to a form that the public can understand. Therefore, the Indian Nitrogen Group is encouraged to work with NGOs to produce a public summary of the Indian Nitrogen Assessment, for a broad consensus and understanding.
- Zero Budget Natural Farming (ZBNF) look promising also from the point of view of nitrogen. However, it need further validation and testing for improving performance.
- There is a huge opportunity for India and South-Asia to take the lead in bringing the draft Nitrogen Resolution to the UN Environment Assembly.
