Policy for Environment and Climate
Policy level actions related to topics of inclusive growth, Green Economy and climate change are getting implemented.
Our core topics
Use the tools of environmental economics and accounting to advise policy processes and develop monitoring systems. The intent is to account for environmental externalities.
Environmental Fiscal Reforms (EFRs)
Develop a range of policy instruments in the area of waste and waste water that have the potential to raise revenues while simultaneously providing incentives to achieve environmental sustainability goals.
Address key and emerging resource constraints through the 3R principle by focusing on selected sectors such as end of life vehicles, e-waste and waste-to-energy.
Promote the development of tools (for eg. Reviving the Indian Eco-Mark and developing environmental education curricula) that provide an orientation towards environmentally sensitive consumer choices.
