When we talk about Green economy we never think of only investment, green jobs, and production rather it must be about Just and Fair Distribution of Resources and Sufficiency, taking into account social and biophysical limits to economic growth. Natural resources are becoming less day by day and plutocratic approach in modern economy creating the millions at stake. The environmental rights are as inherent as that of human rights in one’s life so accessibility of natural resources cannot be limit less due to some got early competency in world. There must be civilised contracting among different races on earth in nurturing the others.
India should go for, to promote resource efficiency, develop markets for sustainable products and services, create green jobs, advocating green investment, environmentally sound technologies transfer in various economic sectors to secure the achievement of a green economy.
Equitable distribution of resources,
Ensure rehabilitation in ambit of Earth’s tolerance
The Indian market is under tremendous transformation for 5-6 years, rapid growth of things has laid the foundation of differential society. The competency to acquire materials things is undoubtedly is fruits of some brilliant mind and labour but should not create injustice with those who born in miseries and could not attain proper education to reap the fruits of their mind and labour. This undeveloped class has equal rights over the planet’s resources.
The progressive society must focus on SUFFICIENT-NEED MODEL where the fruits of one’s intellect could not cost to living beings of another; those who are incompetent may not be out of equal environmental rights race. The having class recognizing the sufficiency of resources for them and providing opportunity to access to needs of vulnerable at the planet.
A shift to a green economy involves expanding green production and markets; reducing depletion of natural resources and degradation of ecosystems caused by economic activity; and increasing reliance on low-carbon energy supply to mitigate climate change. The transition is not automatic though; it needs to be supported by development-led policies and concerted actions to ensure outcomes are inclusive across and within countries. So market developed or developing should also peep in to at consumption or demand side of economy and addressing lifestyles, values, unsustainable consumption patterns. These activities should be supported by integrating sufficiency concept into educational system, awareness raising and educational activities regarding green economy.
The goals of a green economy are broad, comprehensive and ambitious, but they are not new. A lot of what is implied in the green economy concept dates back to Agenda 21, a ‘blueprint for sustainable development’, adopted during the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio, are still reluctant the compliance from global world.
