This Center has been formed:
Keeping in mind the increasing importance of environmental issues in the process of planning and development in India and to provide the necessary skills to auditors in auditing environmental issues, the Comptroller and Auditor General of India decided to set up a training center called “International Center for Environment Audit and Sustainable Development (iCED)”.
iCED is being setup in Jaipur and seeks to harness India’s expertise in having conducted more than 100 environment audits in the last 20 years in providing extensive training and experience sharing in the field of environment audit and sustainable development. iCED facility in Jaipur has been conceived as a green building and a host of features have been incorporated in design and construction to reduce carbon footprint of the building signifying SAI India’s commitment towards environment conservation.
The construction of iCED at Jaipur is in full swing and academic facilities are scheduled to be ready by March 2013. In the meantime, iCED has already started functioning from the premises of Regional Training Institute in Jaipur from April 2011.
