(ii) Switching to conventional sources of energy to save fossil fuels by using solar cookers, lamps, panels, wind mills, hydroelectric power plants, etc. to conserve fossil fuels and generate less pollution.

(iii) Practicing eco-tourism, afforestation, and agro-forestry, and developing greener and better methods of irrigation to prevent wastage of water and soil erosion by surface runoff.
