Impact of COVID19 on water issues and the way forward- A Round-table conversation
During the on-going pandemic, most of us have observed or experienced too, that how nature is reclaiming its lost space. Whether it is a reduced level of pollution in the Yamuna river, or cleaner air in cities, one of the reasons for these ecological changes is the minimal human interaction with the environment. This raises an important question on the climate change debate. The efforts to mitigate the problem were largely focused on systemic changes but CoVID has brought the humans to the center of this debate. In this regard, one important issue to be addressed is the increasing demand for water by 2050 for which there will be hindrances such as environmental diplomacy and in particularly damaged rivers. We see that basic utilities are not given to people who cannot afford and this happens because we look at citizens as customers. whereas for good governance, we need to evaluate if the water is reaching all citizens, define goals, and most importantly ensure citizen participation.

Virtual Panel Discussion on: The Political Economy of the post- COVID World.
"In the post COVID era, the world would certainly not remain the same. Whether, governments will redefine governance to enhance public participation or will a more centralised regime take over? Will we see a reversal in the trend of globalisation or whether this would lead to a rise of authoritarian autarchic governments? And will the advent of AI take over human jobs while the shared economy dream diamanté’s in the post Covid times?” These are wide ranging political economy questions discussed in this panel.
