20 January 2017: Environmental Challenges in India

E. Somanathan
Indian Statistical Institute, Delhi

Ajay Mathur, TERI

Environmental problems including climate change, air pollution and forest degradation have reduced incomes and worsened health in India. Prof Somanathan will examine the evidence on some of these findings. The weaknesses in our institutions that permitted this to happen will be highlighted. Some of these challenges, climate change in particular, are going to become more severe over time. The speaker will analyse some likely future technological, economic and climate scenarios that can emerge from this, and will examine the political and social reactions to these. Further, he will discuss the changes in the Indian institutions and policies that are required to address these challenges.

Followed by a keynote address by Shri Ajay Narayan Jha, Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India.
