Nashik: A Memorandum of Understanding was signed on Friday between the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) and the World Resource Institute (WRI) for the Nashik Climate Action Plan, in the presence of the state’s Minister of Environment, Aditya Thackeray.
The Minister said that if citizens, experts and NGOs are involved in planning the development of cities, sustainable development must be achieved by minimizing damage to nature. The minister also said that as part of the exercise, GIS mapping of every tree in Nashik city and the rural belt will be carried out, which will help keep an eye on trees and plan development works. .
Thackeray, who also holds the tourism portfolio, said efforts are underway to make Nashik a tourist district and a meeting will be held soon for the development of adventure, religious and health tourism.
Commissioner Kailas Jadhav said the action plan is being prepared to achieve carbon neutrality in the city by 2035 and carbon surplus by 2050, for which, the WRI – which receives funds under CSR will prepare the roadmap for the company which would be executed only with the participation of people.
The action plan proposes maximum uses of electric vehicles, the use of renewable energy sources, finding the right balance between the available resources of water, air, soil, energy and their optimal use. “Optimum use of energy can be sought by using more cycles and the availability of footpaths than the NMC will take in due course. But it is important that people use the system provided by the NMC,” Jadhav said.
