For an environmentally sustainable future, India needs to value its natural resources, and ecosystem services to better inform policy and decision-making especially since India is a hotspot of unique biodiversity and ecosystems. Since GDP growth and environmental damage have a strong positive relationship, a proper assessment of environmental social benefits and social costs of income growth is to be assessed so that policies can be directed towards setting environmentally sustainable growth rates. Efforts to develop environmental accounting and green GDP for India can help us achieve sustainable development in the future. For ecological sustainability and social justice, India needs to evolve an economy with a lower ecological footprint and higher well-being and shared prosperity.
This two days conference will give the common platform to more than 500 industry stakeholders; thought leaders, policymakers, business leaders, and key decision-makers within the public and private sectors and discuss the key environmental issues and their solutions.
