Under GSDP initiative, skilling of youth (especially 10th and 12th dropouts) will be undertaken for increasing availability of skilled workforce in environment and forest sector to provide them gainful employment or self-employment.

Under GSDP, green skills will be imparted in more than 30 programmes in diverse fields identified, which will be conducted in 84 institutions across India.

GSDP will also help in the attainment of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), National Biodiversity Targets (NBTs) and Waste Management Rules 2016.
