GGGI and the Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) published 3 project reports on February 03, exploring green growth in India. The project, ‘Initiative on Green Growth and Development in India’, aims at building evidence through rigorous analysis to help formulate policy choices and green growth opportunities at national and sub-national levels.
The reports provide insights and recommendations at the national level and in the states of Punjab and Himachal Pradesh with the aim of propelling them towards green growth and sustainable development. In addition to partnering in the implementation of the project, GGGI India team developed a pre-feasiblity proposal for the Government of Himachal Pradesh (GoHP) to introduce electric buses in the state. The proposal was accepted by the government and the state became the first in the country to successfully secure funds from the Government of India for the introduction of electric buses in public transportation.
The reports are result of the two-year long project helping to understand required climate resilient green growth interventions, which include natural resource management, sustainable energy and inclusive economic development. Each title includes a technical report and a summary brief for policymakers on specific sectors critical to addressing long-term sustainability challenges in India.
