Environment, Natural Resources and Sustainability

This theme focuses on contemporary issues related to climate change, sustainability and natural resources especially water, forest and land. Our work on these issues attempts to analyze policies and their implementation from people’s perspective, their experiences and learning. Under this thematic area we focus especially on following three sub themes.

  • Water, Forests and Land (Jal, Jangal, Jameen)
  • The Trade-off between economic growth and sustainability
  • Climate change and India’s response
