The National Centre for Sustainable Coastal Management (NCSCM) is a research institute under the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change. The institute undertakes studies and research in the area of Coastal Zone Management including coastal resources and environment.
NCSCM is a member of the following work packages:
Investigating the consequences of reducing nitrogen pollution and how this will impact society, human well-being and the economy in the future. How choices made in other parts of the world affect South Asian decisions on nitrogen and vice versa is also explored
Creating a free-to-use app to help farmers make decisions on fertiliser and manure that allow it be used more efficiently
Investigate how nitrogen pollution can intensify coral bleaching and stop reefs from recovering by comparing reefs at different distances from pollution sources
Collating data and identifying gaps, bringing together many data sets in one place, to create detailed maps on nitrogen pollution in the atmosphere around South Asia. From this nitrogen budgets can be developed to help direct policy making
This research focuses on understanding how nitrogen impacts as it flows through water ways from rivers to the ocean and model how this may change in the future. It also looks at how better waste water management could reduce pollution and ways we can increase water quality
Through modelling and mapping this work package explores how nitrogen pollution contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and how managing nitrogen can reduce climate change
