Compelled by the growing economy, India is extracting resources @ 1580 tonnes/acre, much higher than the world average of 450 tonnes/acre with a low recycling rate at 25% only. Together, economy and consumption patterns are expected to double the demand for materials from the current 7 billion tonnes by 2030, leading to several ecological and economic backlashes. To prevent such a situation, the Government of India has proposed a draft Resource Efficiency Policy and sought suggestions from stakeholders. This contribution aims for a wider dissemination of information about the Draft Policy and also suggestions by the authors for effective implementation of proposed policy.

Abstract


Compelled by the growing economy, India is extracting resources @ 1580 tonnes/acre, much higher than the world average of 450 tonnes/acre with a low recycling rate at 25% only. Together, economy and consumption patterns are expected to double the demand for materials from the current 7 billion tonnes by 2030, leading to several ecological and economic backlashes. To prevent such a situation, the Government of India has proposed a draft Resource Efficiency Policy and sought suggestions from stakeholders. This contribution aims for a wider dissemination of information about the Draft Policy and also suggestions by the authors for effective implementation of proposed policy.
