There are serious environmental problems arising from both the tsunami itself and the large scale responses to it. Contaminated wells, exposure to asbestos and chemicals from destroyed buildings, soil erosion, plastic debris such as water bottles from relief operations etc have become serious problems to both people and the environment. Using the best practices of ecology and environmental management for the public benefit, Sarvodaya is looking into the ways and means of conservation and enhancement of biodiversity and maintenance of ecological processes and life support systems essential to a fully functional biosphere. Sarvodaya will promote and encourage education, training, in the practice of ecology, environmental management and sustainable development.
