Clean Energy should Balance Livelihood and Ecology

Clean Energy should Balance Livelihood and Ecology

At the 27th Conference of Parties of the UN Climate Convention, or COP27, in Egypt, key documents highlighted how to meet the 2050 climate targets set in the Paris Summit. The Sharm El Sheikh Implementation Plan, VIII- Implementation-pathways to just transition, stresses the need for just solutions based on meaningful and effective social dialogue and the participation of all stakeholders with a clear focus on economic development and poverty eradication.

Disastrous Decade for Data

Disastrous decade for data he daunting challenges concerning data posed by the CAA-NPR-NRC debate have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and Recession. The reluctance of the government to release official data needs to be resolved urgently. As India unlocks, postponement of NPR and only doing the first phase of the 2021 census work will be a logical step to ensure that the census does not suffer from the limited window during which the entire work is expected to be completed.
