About the conference
The environment plays a vital role for the functioning of ecosystems and is ultimately related to human health. The increasing human population and industrial development have worsened the problem of disposal of anthropogenic chemicals and wastes in the environment. A majority of these contaminants contain potentially genotoxic and carcinogenic substances, since these genotoxins interact with genetic material of animals leading to a variety of ill effects.In view of the increasing awareness of formidable impacts of mankind and the environment, appropriate protective measures need to be adopted to mitigate the pollutants in order to achieve clean environment. In this context this conference will be aimed to cover the following topics,Environmental pollution, environmental ethics, solid waste disposal, toxicology, environmental technology, climate change, biodiversity, environmental awareness, legislation and regulation, mosquito control and food security and safety etc.
