Blending culture with tourism 17.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The 18th of April every year is celebrated the world over as World Heritage Day or the International Day for Monuments and Sites. This year, the theme for the Day is Cultural Heritage & Sustainable Tourism. This theme was chosen to dovetail with the United Nations' declaration of 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. Sustainable tourism goes beyond environmental concerns to encompass cultural, social and economic issues within its ambit. Cultural heritage and sustainable tourism seem then to be natural partners and indeed, they often are. Five years ago, the world's billionth tourist boarded a plane and travelled somewhere. Today, more than a billion tourists travel everywhere every year, Indians included. How has this tremendous increase in footfalls impacted sustainability and cultural heritage?

By 2025, renewables could power 25% of Indian Railways: CEEW study 5.4.2017 DNA: Top News
Indian Railways could draw up to 25% of its electric power needs from renewables and achieve the target of 5 GW of solar by 2025, according to a study released by the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) on Wednesday.  An investment of $3.6 billion would be needed by Indian Railways to meet the 5 GW target.  A potential 5 GW target, provides an opportunity for solar developers, with an estimated 1.1 GW coming from rooftop and 3.9 GW from utility scale projects.  The CEEW study ‘Decarbonising the Indian Railways: Scaling Ambitions, Understanding Ground Realities’, funded by UNDP, identifies key policy and regulatory challenges that developers face while supporting the Railways’ renewable energy push.  The study was released by Union Minister for Railways, Suresh Prabhu, and Minister of State (IC) for Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy and Mines, Piyush Goyal. Prabhu said, “We want Indian Railways to become a green engine of growth. Decarbonisation is extremely important for Railways. We have ...
