    State of India’s Environment 2021: In Figures (E-book)

    The annual e-book analyses exclusive datasets by government and other credible sources for better analysis of complex issues pertaining to the country’s environment and development. The first edition of this book was released in 2016 and ever since the reach and readership of the book has grown phenomenally. The book was born out of the belief that processing data and information is the new way to communicate today. It endeavours to churn out compelling data stories that are credible and easy to comprehend. This is critical as today data is overflowing and information is available from so many sources and so fast that sometimes we end up not making any sense of the happenings.

    COVID-19 : A NEW WORLD DISORDER (eBook)

    The covid-19 pandemic can be regarded as the globalised world’s most localised emergency. It has gained notoriety as the world’s fastest disease outbreak that turned into a pandemic. Barring lifestyle ailments, no other contemporary disease or infection has ever gripped the globe at this speed in recent memory. It has forced over half of the world’s population into an involuntary lockdown, and brought nations and their economies to their knees. Six months into the pandemic, the world is yet to even imagine a recovery. It is an epochal event that is (and will be) fundamentally changing the world order and the way we exist in consonance with nature. From political and economic ideologies to natural resource extraction, and to global trade and performance of development schemes, covid-19 has impacted all our existential coordinates. This book, and the articles in it, not only offers the first draft of the pandemic’s immediate history but also explores what the world would be like, after this. One might refer to it as the “new normal” and argue its inevitability and its acceptance, but the writers here paint a picture of a world like never before. The question we may ask is, how prepared are we for such a world? Order your copy and know more about this right away.

    Frames of change - Heartening tales that define new India

    The challenge before India is immense. We need to maximise the productivity of our environment in a sustainable manner. This calls for extremely disciplined systems of resource use and management. This type of management will never emerge unless we improve our policy and decision-making systems. The book retrieves some classic case studies so that they can be replicated in the national and global context. These initiatives can inspire out-of-the-box thinking among those who wish to start entrepreneurial ventures with a social purpose. While some have already become templates for wider changes, others can inspire governments to do more. These are the Frames of Change that define a new India.

    CLIMATE CHANGE NOW - The Story of Carbon Colonisation

    We live in the age of climate change—heat waves, extreme weather events, increase in diseases induced by deforestation, floods and snowfall in deserts, unprecedented hurricanes, storms and drought conditions across the world. The challenge is to find a balance between economic growth and ecological spaces. However, global climate negotiations, for over 25 years, are stuck, as the US, which is the largest polluter historically, has walked out of every agreement. This book is the voice of the developing countries, or the Global South, who are the victims of climate change, even though they have not contributed to the problem. And they will never have capacities to deal with catastrophes as much as the rich nations. Climate change is going to widen the gap between developed and developing countries. This is the story of carbon colonisation...
