National security is indispensable for a country’s survival and growth. Although security has been a complex issue in human history, its complexity increases in the contemporary period because of technological developments, climate change and various other factors. The complexity of security has led to constant thinking and rethinking about the idea of security, its processes, and dynamics. Given the multiplicity of security challenges that India faces, it is important to investigate the nature and scope of these challenges. As part of its series, The State of International Affairs- #Diplomacy Dialogue, #IMPRI Centre for International Relations and Strategic Studies (CIRSS), IMPRI Impact and Policy Research Institute, New Delhi, organized the IMPRI #WebPolicyTalk with Dr Arvind Gupta, on Emerging Dimensions of India’s National Security on July 13, 2022.
With the increase in the average temperature of the earth, the events of climate change are now happening more intensely than before. This year (2022) both the Arctic and the Antarctic, as well as many countries around the world, such as India, Pakistan, France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Algeria and the United States of America, are in the grip of the early arrival of heat waves. Although the heat waves now regularly come every year, this year has seen the astonishing phenomenon of their early arrival causing the vanishing of the spring season in almost every country and resulting in the summer season arriving prematurely; this phenomenon has been happening continuously from one region to another this year. The rapidly rising heat waves and the record-breaking rise in temperature are not natural phenomena; it is the result of intrusive human activities for overexploitation of natural resources.
According to Census 2011, India’s urban population was 37.7 crores, projected to grow to about 60 crores by 2030. The National Commission on Population (NCP) in India predicts that in the next 14 years (i.e., by 2036), about 38.6 per cent of Indians (600 million) will live in urban areas. The United Nations, too, highlights that India’s urban population size will nearly double between 2018 and 2050, from 461 to 877 million. Under this backdrop, the IMPRI Centre for Habitat, Urban and Regional Studies (CHURS), Impact and Policy Research Institute, New Delhi, hosted a Distinguished Lecture on State of India’s Urbanization as a part of the #WebPolicyTalk, The State of Cities – #CityConversations on June 22, 2022.
