Policy Brief on ‘Avenues of Alignment between Sustainable Development


Author: Development Alternatives    Pages:     Price:     ISBN No:   

Nearly after a year of signing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal Agenda and the Paris Agreement on climate change, countries are now moving from commitment to implementation. Even though both are different in legal terms, they are strongly connected in terms of targets. India understanding of the alignment between the agendas should help planning at the sub-national and district level better. It will help in translation of the agenda to bring synergies between ministries and departments and an integrated approach to planning, budgets and monitoring processes. Addressing these two together could help save resources and reap greater co-benefits for development to ensure that in India “no one is left behind”

Lessons for India’s Transition to a Greener Economy

Lessons for India’s Transition to a Greener Economy


Author: Development Alternatives     Pages: 20    Price:     ISBN No:   

In India, policy options targeted towards greening the manufacturing, energy, transport, construction, etc. sectors will cost the economy a meagre 0.2% to 0.4% of the annual GDP growth along with contributing to employment generation. By maintaining and building up natural capital and mitigating resource scarcity, these investments will provide the basis for enhanced human well-being, opportunities for job creation, and sustained economic development for the next 20 to 40 years. The movement is thus from mere economic growth towards achieving a triple win development that includes social integration, economic viability, and environmental sustainability. Redefining the way progress is looked at, with the needs of our society and our natural infrastructure, the concept of green economy is to create long-term priorities for investment that will form the basic fabric of improving levels of human well-being and natural capital systems. This paper attempts to understand the key sectors for intervention in India and have emerged as the main players in undertaking green initiatives.
