India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. The nation is gradually moving forward in several sectors. However, there are some domains where India still lags behind. One of these categories is the unequally distributed developmental benefitsamong the states of India. While states like Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra etc. have achieved thetitle of highly industrialized and developed states, northern states are still struggling for the basic infrastructure. But the issue is not limited to northern states. India being of a diverse nature not concluding just in terms of culture but topographyas well. A large part of the country is part of the Himalayan region where developmental needs are somewhat different. These states, including Himachal Pradesh, Sikkim and other North-Eastern states are the land of uncanny and pristine natural beauty and present exceptionally high literacy rates, however other developmental indicators, remain surprisingly low.
A sustainable model for the development of these states should be based on taking up a holistic approach which is flexible enough to adjust and adapt according to the time and situation and therefore, can go a long way to address the issue which these states are facing. In this context, the Center of Policy Research and Governance proposes to organize a two-day conclave on
'Sustainable Development Models for the Hilly States in the Emerging New India'
Under the presence of Eminent Economists, Political Scientists, Council of Ministers, Policy Makers and the Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh himself, we are going to have discussions covering the following themes:
Center of Policy Research and Governance is an organization of inquisitive brains from all walks of life with a high level of experience in the field of research, agriculture, management, and policy framing.
It has published several types of research on various fields including governance, social issues and economic policies. The organization mainly works in four broad areas such as economic policies, social policies, regional development, and governance.
Our Organization was established in the year 2016 with the hope of creating a better India by developing the research potential of the budding talent in the field of policy making. It envisions a society which is free from the barriers of inequality and injustice. All our work is directed towards giving a voice to the voiceless, power to the powerless and to establish a thought process which depends upon the values of Liberty and Freedom.
