  • 10. More Rhetoric…. 10
  • 11. Rhetoric Continues……. 11
  • 12. Gap between Academia and Policy Community • Conclusions  Constraints  Advocacy  Demand – Is your research going to advice same conclusion? – Did you identify binding constraints in implementing environmental reforms? – Did you follow up your research via advocacy? – Did you manage to form a constituency that demands environmental reforms? 12
  • 13. How Innovative is our Research Process? Before you give policy advice please consider three issues: • Social capital for making a specific intervention • Social accountability (and urban spaces) • Social innovation (and cleaner environment) 13
  • 14. Socially-relevant Economic Growth Process Public expenditure and social capital 3 Case Studies Finding Cities innovation being more processes that reduce responsive inequalities to poor 14
  • 15. Social Capital and Disaster Management• Floods in 2010 and 2011• Investment available from local and external sources – Absorption of adaptation measures difficult (people don’t want to move from their flooded homes)• In 2010 significant portion of disaster management funds surrendered/diverted• In 2011 social mobilization teams went first and interventions came latter• In 2011 pre-flood negotiations with katcha settlers – Absorption improved and timely expenditures observed Social Capital more important than human and physical capital 15
  • 16. Social Accountability and Cities• South Asian Mayor’s Meeting• We conducted social accountability interventions in two urban slum areas with lowest enrollment: – Minority Christian community – Migrant community• Parents-Teachers committees formed over 13 months and parents informed on registering grievances• Parents ensuring not only child attendance but also content of schooling• A case for micro-governance interventions Cities have a greater tendency to be pro-poor 16
  • 17. Social Innovation and Environment• While formal innovation systems still remain clogged by barriers to entry in market• It is the informal innovations that are pro-poor and have greater growth potential – Honey bee network  Anil Gupta• Case Study of Garbage Bank (Gul Bahao Project) – Low cost consumer durables – Housing at affordable prices – Infrastructure at lower unit costs Innovations that respond to needs of the poor 17

  • 22. National Consultations on Green Economy – Some Recommendations• Sustainable Development – Devising implementation framework for National Sustainable Development Strategy • Focus less on investment aspects and more on governance – Where to after devolution? • Environmental appraisal of national and sub-national policies, programs and projects – Establishing National Fund on Climate Change and Green Development – Central Bank to incentivize green investments 22
  • 23. National Consultations on Green Economy – Some Recommendations• Cleaner Energy – Alternative energy: Revisit hydel power – Technology for cleaner conventional sources: clean coal, carbon capture and storage, and carbon offset – Energy Efficiency: adopt policies, financing instruments, and information dissemination to promote energy efficiency in power generation and distribution, transport, buildings, and industry 23
  • 24. National Consultations on Green Economy – Some Recommendations• Two additional areas – Sustainable agriculture for food security – Sustainable urbanization 24
  • 25. Bottom Line in Political Economy Analysis for Climate Change Interventions • Where is the capacity to comprehend advice? • Is there enough social capital to make intervention? • Is it possible to introduce demand-side accountability? • Will it be least cost intervention? 25
