Environment & Climate Change

CPRG India > Environment & Climate Change

With rising global temperatures and the thought of climate change turning into a reality, India remains extremely vulnerable to climate vagaries. Not only agriculture, but the liveability of its cities are themselves under question if the surface-level temperatures rise too drastically. Climate change can affect the economic productivity of the nation, exacerbating the existing socio-economic divide in the country. These aspects pose questions, whose answers will dictate India’s story in the coming years. Moreover, other related aspects such as issues of air pollution, underground water table, and preservation of biodiversity, also pose important questions that Indian policies will have to answer as it moves forward on its journey of public welfare.
