About GSDP

Green Skill Development Programme (GSDP):

Green skills contribute to preserving or restoring environmental quality for sustainable future and include jobs that protect ecosystems and biodiversity, reduce energy and minimize waste and pollution. In line with the Skill India Mission of the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Ministry of Environment, Forests & Climate Change (MoEF&CC), utilizing the vast network and expertise of ENVIS Hubs/RPs, has taken up an initiative for skill development in the environment and forest sector to enable India’s youth to get gainful employment and/or self-employment, called the Green Skill Development Programme (GSDP). The programme endeavors to develop green skilled workers having technical knowledge and commitment to sustainable development which will help in the attainment of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), National Biodiversity Targets (NBTs) as well as Waste Management Rules (2016).

The ENVIS Hub Nagaland has successfully completed the following GSDP course and is in the process of conducting such trainings under the GSDP. Information regarding such trainings will be made available in local dailies and other such platforms as and when approved by the Ministry.
