12 April 2018: Campaigning for Air Quality: Lessons from Two Decades of Advocacy

Anumita Roychowdhury
Centre for Science and Environment

In conversation with:
Navroz K Dubash, Centre for Policy Research

Anumita Roychowdhury, who has been at the forefront of the clean air campaign in India for more than two decades, in conversation with Navroz K Dubash, will examine the practical considerations around governance of air quality in the country. Based on CSE's long experience, what kinds of strategies have been effective in improving Indian air quality regulation and governance, and what has failed to work? What are some of the lessons to be drawn from these efforts at shaping policy through deep government engagement and work with the courts? Are major challenges better institutions, better policy or better implementation and what is the mix of these? How can we move from predominantly reactive measures to effective long term preventive policies? How can the present public concern about air pollution be mobilised from being episodic and somewhat blinkered to becoming sustained and politically salient in an ongoing way? The conversation will go behind the scenes of policy making and action around air quality, in order to inform future efforts.
