Discussion paper on National Inventory Management System (NIMS) in India - Issues, needs and implementation framework
22 Sep 2020
The paper discusses that a centralized National Inventory Management System (NIMS) in India is the need of the hour and its operational contours should be decided as expeditiously as possible. This is needed not only to compute India's emissions from various sources and sinks comprehensively and correctly, but also fulfill India’s international obligations to track the progress in respect of mitigation related commitments such as economy-wide goal to reduce emissions intensity and the sectoral goals as envisaged under India’s NDC.

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the world economies in a unique and at an unprecedented scale. On the flipside, it has also given an opportunity to the economies, business and industries to rethink and respond on the type of recovery path they choose that essentially leads to minimal disruption and long-term stability. This report argues that sustainable urbanization should be front and centre of the recovery plan, in order to put the Indian economy back on a more equitable high growth pathway.

India is in the midst of an energy transition, with important social and economic implications depending on the pathways that are chosen. India's energy pathway will define the basis for its future development, including economic prosperity, business and employment opportunities as well as health impacts. At the same time, current investment decisions in India's energy sector will have a substantial impact on combating global warming and securing the livelihoods of people in India and elsewhere.

भारत में खनिजों के लिए सर्वाधिक भू-वैज्ञानिक संभावनाएं हैं। ऊपरी सतह अथवा उससे कुछ नीचे स्थित अधिकांश खनिज खोजे जा चुके हैं और गहराई में छिपे हुए खनिज निक्षेपण के लिए एक गहन खोज की आवश्यकता है। इसका अभिप्राय है नवीनतम प्रौद्योकियों के द्वारा सतत आधार पर गवेषण किए जाएं।

Under the backdrop of the Paris Agreement, parties committed to developing mid-century or long-term low emission development strategies by 2020 (Long-Term Strategy or LTS). This strategy should be tailor-made, such that it aligns with the short-term as well as medium time climate action and, chalks out a climate-resilient development pathway. It is critical that such a pathway also embraces adaptation and mitigation choices that have the potential to offset as well as contribute to sustainable development.
