Policy Discourse Analysis-India: Supporting climate resilience in policymaking
Policy discourse analyses (PDAs) draw on existing evidence and engage key stakeholders in a dialogue to review different policy arenas. IIED is undertaking case studies of countries participating in the PDAs and this report focuses on India, where a PDA was carried out to assess the extent to which climate resilience is factored into current policies and programmes. The report reviews recent developments in key policy areas relating to climate resilience, as well as the main discourses, policy objectives and stakeholders in key thematic areas to establish how climate risk management is being addressed. The report also identifies alternative discourses and evidence gaps to present opportunities and entry points for climate resilient development.
South Asia as a region has witnessed favourable economic growth and is gearing up to capitalise on opportunities provided by urbanisation, economic diversification and a young population. At the same time the region is also home to the world's largest population of the poor and is extremely vulnerable to adverse impacts of climate change.
