CEEW will work with the state governments to assess policy and regulatory trade-off's with the aim of assisting in building integrated plans for energy, environment and water.
- Integrated Energy, Environment and Water Reforms
CEEW intends to work closely with state governments to develop integrated energy, environment and water plans. CEEW has already advised Bihar on water-climate linkages. This work with the governments also forms a part of CEEW's research
- Institutional Reforms for Water Use Efficiency in Agriculture
CEEW worked on a project to identify and analyse international experiences with institutional reforms for water efficiency in agriculture.Its paper, which was released at an event it organised at the India Water Week, examined successful water-related institutional reforms that have improved water use efficiency in several countries including, but not limited to, China, Turkey and Mexico.The lessons from these countries were further examined in light of what might be relevant for India’s national, regional and local water institutions.

- Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission Project
CEEW partnered with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to evaluate the first phase of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, which has the goal of installing 20 gigawatts of solar energy by 2022. This assessment has drawn on data, information and input from a variety of stakeholders including, but not limited to, solar manufacturers, developers investors and industry associations.The results from this analysis was presented as a report "Laying the Foundation for a Bright Future" to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. The report adopts a “whole-of-system” approach, identifying multiple stakeholders and focusing on all aspects of grid-connected solar power: selection, deployment and commissioning of projects; bankability and the role of various financial channels; the development of a robust manufacturing base; and the creation of an enabling environment with regard to land, power evacuation, skills, and so forth.This project is also part of our work with the government.

- National Water Resources Framework Study
CEEW prepared a National Water Resources Framework Study for the Planning Commission, which is expected to feed into proposals for the12th Five Year Plan. CEEW's research was discussed at a national workshop at the Planning Commission on 14 July 2011.

- National Water Resources Framework Study: Roadmaps for Reforms
As a follow up to the National Water Resources Framework Study submitted to the Planning Commission of India on 14th July 2011, CEEW was also asked to develop roadmaps for reforms at the state level for the 12th Five Year Plan and beyond. CEEW has started to engage with a few state governments to present the proposed reforms.
