Impact evaluation of climate change mitigation policies for the manufacturing sector in Gujarat

This study, part of The Council’s ongoing work under GHG Platform India and supported by the Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation, assesses eight policies and mitigation actions undertaken in the Indian state of Gujarat’s manufacturing sector. Gujarat has implemented numerous policies on its manufacturing sector with little or no significant impact on greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation. The study aims to sensitise stakeholders across government, industry, academia, and civil society groups, about the impact of policies and mitigation actions on reducing GHG emission intensity in the manufacturing sector. Further, it recommends the state government on whether ongoing mitigation efforts need to be continued, adjusted, or expanded, or if additional policy measures need to be implemented.
