18 Dec 2013

Dr. Pallav Purohit from International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Austria presented on "Opportunities for integrated policy design - applications of the GAINS India Tool" at the CEEW office. 

In this presentation he highlighted how the GAINS India model could be used as a clearing house and central tool in bringing expert knowledge from various fields and institutions together and to provide very practical guidance for effective policy design, both at the national as well as the state level, and in particular at the interface between them. He illustrated how future policy options can easily be represented in GAINS and compared to each other easily, in particular also their economic implications. More generally we highlight the participatory nature of the model: experts can update input data remotely and make these available to other users over the internet, while stakeholders can review and analyze future scenarios. Users in central agencies then, such as CPCB or MoEF, can control the data collection process and information flow. Finally he illustrated the role that the GAINS model already plays in various policy processes at the EU- and UN-level to address transboundary pollution effectively.
