A separate Environmental Clearance for the Himalayas? + volunteer in your city as a Policy Community Coordinator!
Policy Post #137
Editor’s Note ✍️
Excited to share the launch of PPI’s city chapters on WhatsApp! To further our goal of democratising the policy and social impact space, we’ve started policy chapters across 15 cities in India! The idea is to facilitate exchanges and learning via conversations on WhatsApp (and beyond!) while also facilitating interactions, meet-ups and career opportunities outside of New Delhi. Join the chapter for your city today and we’re also onboarding leaders for these communities as well :)
In this edition of The Policy Post, we cover:
🔹 A look into how developments in the Indian Himalayan Region (IHR) are wrecking the region, pointing to a need to relook at Environmental Clearances.
🔹An interesting op-ed on the devaluation of the Indian rupee in 1966.
🔹Exciting opportunities with the International Innovation Corps and The Period Fellowship!
🔹Volunteer to be a policy community coordinator in your city!
🔹Our weekly curation of some of the best essays, podcasts, career resources etc. from the world of Policy in the week gone by.
With that, we bring to you: Policy Post #137!
