The Centre for Policy Research (CPR) is a leading nonprofit, nonpartisan independent policy research institution dedicated to conducting studies that contribute to a more robust public discourse about structures and processes that shape life in India. Its objectives include developing and disseminating substantive policy options on matters relevant to the Indian polity, environment, economy and society. This award enables CPR to study existing governance and institutional frameworks guiding the delivery of climate policies in India, and to recommend measures and methods that will lead to stronger alignment of the design, delivery and evaluation of climate policies. In addition, this award supports CPR to use the issue of air pollution reduction as a test case to apply recommendations emerging from the larger study and to adopt a constructive multi-stakeholder approach.

The Centre for Policy Research is an independent, nonpartisan research institute and think tank. Its mission is to undertake research that contributes to a more robust public discourse about the structures and processes that shape life in India. Consistent with this mission, this project helps to shape the agenda for policymaking in the areas of climate, energy and environment, and particularly the linkages across them. While Indian policymaking in these areas suffers from implementation challenges, they are often rooted in the absence of a larger vision that is reasoned, well argued, empirically supported, and publicly embraced. The project contributes to the development of a long-term, strategic vision for climate and energy futures in the context of India’s development challenges.
