Fortune at the bottom of the pyramid: eradicating poverty through profits
-  Prahalad,  C K.

Dorling Kindersley India  Pvt. Ltd.

Accn. No. CD1528

The last couple of decades have seen great increases in sales, now multinational corporations are seeing markets with sluggish or no growth. One market that's been overlooked is also the fastest growing market in the world, and it's where you least expect it: at the bottom of the pyramid. Collectively, the world's 5 billion poor have vast untapped buying power. They represent enormous potential for companies who learn how to serve this market by providing the poor with what they need. This creates a win-win situation: not only do corporations tap into a vibrant market, but by treating the poor as consumers they are no longer treated with indignity; they become empowered customers. Corporations who service this market form an economic infrastructure, which creates real jobs for the poor, and finally an end to the vicious cycle of poverty. This book is a 3-part manifesto: passionate argument; detailed case studies from India, Peru, Mexico, Brazil, and Venezuela, and range from salt to soap, banking to cellphones, health to housing; and lastly, a CD with digital videos shot on location, designed to bring these innovations alive. C K Prahalad shows why we can't afford to ignore "Bottom of the Pyramid"(BOP) markets.



Compendium of regulations and  tariff orders of CERC and  SERCs

Ministry of  New and Renewable Energy, Government of India    

Accn. No. CD1525

Accelerated development of renewable sources of energy is of critical importance for achieving the goal of energy security and energy independence. The Electricity Act 2003 recognizes the importance of the renewable energy (RE) sector and accordingly mandates that the state electricity regulators promote renewable energy. Accordingly, electricity regulators in several states have issued regulatory and tariff orders for various renewable energy technologies. Such proactive action at the apex level has resulted in a commendable penetration of renewable energy in the overall Indian Energy Mix. As of December, 2009, power generating capacity of 16053 MW through renewable energy has been installed accounting for 10% of the total installed capacity in the country. At present no comprehensive document providing a compilation of Electricity Regulatory Commission orders is available. In order to meet this information gap, a Compendium of the regulations and tariff orders issued by regulatory commissions for renewable energy sector in India for the various sub-sectors, i.e. Small Hydro, Solar Energy, Wind Energy, Biomass Energy, Bagasse based co-generation power plant etc. has been prepared. The compendium contains an executive summary, glossary of words used in various orders, copies of individual orders, summary of each order and a combined summary of CERC & SERCs orders separately for Small Hydro, Solar, Wind, Bio Mass, Bagasse based co-generation plants etc. This compendium provides requisite information relating to Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO) and the tariff structure prevailing in various states, the frame work for grid connectivity and the incentives for different RE sources, some financial aspects etc.

The Global Bioenergy  partnership sustainability  indicators for bioenergy

Global Bioenergy  Partnership.
Accn. No. CD1508

The Global Bioenergy Partnership Sustainability Indicators for Bioenergy. It was developed by GBEP Partners and Observers through the GBEP Task Force on Sustainability that had been working since 2008, initially under the leadership of the United Kingdom and then (since October 2010) of Sweden. The report presents 24 voluntary sustainability indicators for bioenergy intended to guide any analysis undertaken of bioenergy at the domestic level with a view to informing decision making and facilitating the sustainable development of bioenergy and, accordingly, shall not be applied so as to limit trade in bioenergy in a manner inconsistent with multilateral trade obligations. In addition, supporting information relating to the relevance, practicality and scientific basis of each indicator, including suggested approaches for their measurement, is presented in the methodology sheets.

The uniqueness of this GBEP work lies in the fact that it is currently the only initiative seeking to build consensus among a broad range of national governments and international institutions on the sustainability of bioenergy and in the fact that the emphasis is on providing measurements useful for informing national-level policy analysis and development. The GBEP work addresses all forms of bioenergy.

Making the Sewar... A River Again 

Observer Researcher Foundation, Mumbai

Accn. No. CD1512

The study report and a documentary film 'Making the Sewer... A River Again - Why Mumbai must reclaim its Mithi' on the dreadful conditions of the river, was released on May 17, 2011 by Mr. Suresh Prabhu, former Union Minister of Environment and Forests, and Mr. Rajendra Singh, noted water activist and the Ramon Magsaysay Award winner, at a picturesque location inside the mangroves of the Mahim estuary where the Mithi River meets the Arabian Sea. The study, conceptualised by Gautam Kirtane, an ORF research fellow, has been co-authored by him and his fellow researchers Riddhi J. Chokhawala and Dhaval Desai. "India's water security is in crisis. Just 40 years ago, most Indian cities had abundant natural and manmade water sources, but reckless urbanisation has reduced all of them to stinking sewers and nalas. This disturbing trend must be arrested and we must strive as a nation to clean up our rivers and revive our traditional water bodies," said Mr. Singh. He blamed the current oppressive state of the Mithi on the collective apathy of the people of Mumbai, absence of political will and administrative lethargy.
