Fostering sustainable futures

Goa became the first state in India to come out with its strategy on Resource Efficiency (RE) and Circular Economy (CE) in February 2020. The Directorate of Planning, Statistics and Evaluation (DPSE), Government of Goa was the nodal agency for preparing this strategy. As a knowledge partner, TERI helped to develop this Strategy with support from the European Union-Resource Efficiency Initiative (EU-REI). Even with government policies and initiatives in place, the state still struggles with littering, emphasising the urgent need to promote behavioural or mindset changes among the population, particularly in regard to source segregation, says Ms Ashwini Pai Panandiker, Fellow, Earth Science and Climate Change Division, TERI.
