    ABSTRACT: The meeting to draw up a climate change regime for 2020 and beyond in Paris later this year will, as usual, be fraught with overwhelming complexity. Will "climate clubs" be able to offer room for making greater efforts in smaller groups?

    ABSTRACT: Examining long-term trends in food inflation in India in relation to the performance of the Indian agricultural sector under various agrarian policy regimes, this paper shows that despite the slowdown in the agricultural sector and higher increases in the cost of food production during the post-economic reforms period (1992-2013), food prices were relatively low compared to the initial (1967-80) and the maturing (1980-92) stages of the Green Revolution. This, it is argued, is possibly due to more stable agricultural growth post 1991-92, higher buffer food stocks, greater coverage of the public distribution system, and better responses to food price fluctuations due to import/trade liberalisation and a more comfortable foreign exchange reserves position.

    ABSTRACT: We investigate the trends in economic disparities within the Schedule Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes for the last three decades (1983-2012). The analysis has been performed at the all-India level and for the seventeen major states of India. We use the nationally representative consumer expenditure surveys conducted by the National Sample Survey Organisation for the investigation. Our results indicate that the economic disparity ratio has increased substantially for both SCs and STs in both rural and urban areas during the past thirty odd years. It has also increased for most of the seventeen major states considered in this study. Also, the increase is much more in the case of SCs than STs. Further the economic inequality (Gini coefficient) has increased for both SCs and STs in urban India. In rural areas the economic inequality has increased for the SCs but has remained almost same for the STs during the past three decades. However, if we see the post economic reforms period (1993-2012), there is an unambiguous increase in inequality among both SCs and STs for both rural and urban areas. Moreover, the inter-state inequality within the SCs and STs has also gone up enormously in both rural and urban areas.

    ABSTRACT: Urban water and waste water management have not been relatively well understood in India. The Indian urban space has been considered in an undifferentiated manner, which ignores the specificities deriving from different stages of urban development, the sources of water, as also the diverse nature of aquifers catering for urban settlements in different parts of the country. This paper advances a series of hypotheses that can serve as an initial analytical framework and outlines a way forward for urban water systems, which could provide rich terrain for further research.
