Tata Research Institute:
The Tata Energy Research Institute (TERI) has launched a major project, the first phase of which is nearing completion. This project called “Growth with Resource Enhancement of Environment and Nature (GREEN India 2047)” has rigorously estimated the reduction in India’s key natural resources during the period 1947-97, and has computed economic values of consequent losses, which in some cases are alarmingly high.
On the basis of past experience and a careful analysis of the cost behind the degradation that has taken place in the past, strategies for the future have been developed, whereby a fresh and creative approach can be taken in the next 50 years.
