Srinivasan C, Project Director, Indian Green Servince (IGS), started his journey in environmental efforts as the only participating Indian corps member of King County World Conservation Corps, Seattle, USA in the year 1997. He is currently Tamil Nadu State Planning Commission Steering Committee Member for Solid and Liquid Resource Management. Srinivasan C has coined the term Solid and Liquid Resource management to process several by-products which otherwise if untreated is called a waste. Through his pioneering work and vision, Srinivasan is responsible for initiating SLRM projects in Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu, Meghalaya, among several other states of India. Srinivasan C’s association with Association for India’s Development dates back to his pioneering work in Vellore Hill Restoration project. This project was later adopted with his help in Payvihir Eco Village which won United Nations Development Program award in 2014. Srinivasan’s work was highlighted in popular TV series Satyamev Jayate and his work in Jodhpur was inaugurated by Mr. Aamir Khan on August 15, 2014. He coordinated the efforts with Khoj in Melghat to construct Maharashtra’s biggest community biogas plant with total 70 bio-digesters. Alongside, with his work in Coimbatore SLRM his next venture is SLRM centers in Ambikapur, Chattisgarh as part of Swach Ambikapur Mission.
Association for India' Development (AID) is a volunteer movement promoting sustainable, equitable development and social justice. We work directly and through partner organizations in creative efforts in interconnected spheres such as agriculture, energy, education, health, livelihoods, natural resources including land and water, women’s empowerment and social justice. In addition to work in local areas, we believe that systemic change is necessary to take the country on a different path of pro-people development. Therefore, AID pro-actively participates in many struggles against displacement, corruption, human rights violations and injustice, and advocacy campaigns for pro-poor policies. AID has adopted a 3-pronged approach of sangharsh, nirman, seva in our work, with all three aspects playing a critical role.
COURAGE | COMMITMENT | CHANGE
Sangharsh:Countering injustice and advocating for systemic change.
Nirman: Building people-centered sustainable development efforts.
Seva: Personal dedication and transformation.
