EtKon or the “Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Training and Knowledge Network” as the name suggests, is an initiative devised by Dr. Prasad Modak to address EIA training and networking in India. There is a paucity of quality training programs in the EIA arena. EtKon was conceived to demonstrate through pilots, examples of quality EIA courses. Offering courses in the style of continuing education programs was the focus. The design included course plans for various stakeholders arrived at from Training Needs Assessment and a two days workshop with potential EIA training institutions in India.

A web portal was set up www.etkonindia.net as a collaborative and dynamic platform to connect stakeholders with training courses offered by partner training institutes, connect with experts, initiate discussions among stakeholders and provide resources on EIA to stakeholders. EtKon is a unique model for capacity building in EIA on a national scale.
