National Mission for Clean Ganga organises Himalayan Diwas

National Mission for Clean Ganga organised Himalayan Diwas in New Delhi in association with Naula Foundation yesterday. This year’s theme is Contribution of Himalayas and our responsibilities. The event was part of the ongoing celebration of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav. Himalaya Diwas is celebrated every year on 9th September in Uttarakhand. It is celebrated with the aim to conserve Himalayan ecosystem and region.

Explaining the significance of Himalayas, Director General National Mission for Clean Ganga Rajiv Ranjan Mishra raised concerns over unplanned urbanization in the Himalayas and said Himalayan hill towns face several challenges because of poor building planning and designs, poor infrastructure roads, sewage, water supply etc and unprecedented cutting of trees. He said, this causes serious ecological issues. He added that there is an urgent need to develop eco-sensitive hill town plans and designs.
