What India’s environment ministry’s been doing while we were preoccupied with COVID-19, with Kanchi Kohli

COVID-19’s lockdown, for a brief moment, gave us a window into what a greener future would look like. From pollution levels going down and more birds being spotted, to rivers turning cleaner and snow capped mountains becoming visible after decades, the earth seemed to be repairing itself. But during this time, what was India’s environment ministry doing? In this episode, Sandip talks to Kanchi Kohli, senior researcher at Centre for Policy Research (CPR), about how the pandemic has affected the way the ministry has been taking decisions and changing the fundamentals of the environment assessments process.
