E3-India Book Launch
December 14, 2021
3:00 to 5:05 pm IST
E3-India initiative in collaboration with Gokhale institute of Politics & Economics, Cambridge Econometrics, U.K. and Regulatory Assistance Project, USA are jointly launching the book: Economy-Wide Assessment of Regional Policies in India: Applications of E3-India Model.
The book is an extended synthesis from the E3-India (Economy, Energy, Emissions) project, an initiative aimed at enabling evidence-based policy making at the regional level in India. This volume, edited by Prof Kakali Mukhopadhyay (Gokhale Institute of Politics and Economics, Pune & McGill University, Canada), is a compilation of sector-specific studies that exploit the E3-India model to assess the national and sub-national policy implications and their distribution across states. To this end, the project constructed the first ever set of regional Input-Output tables for 32 States and Union Territories in India for comprehensive economy-wide assessment of regional policies.
E3-India is a macro-econometric model used to simulate the effects of economic and energy policy at the national and sub-national level, providing the information that policy makers need when assessing the merits of policy proposals. The model has been in the public domain and freely available to researchers since December 2019.
We invite you to a virtual book launch and deep dive of regional policy analysis with a panel of distinguished senior experts.
The launch is hosted by:
- Dr Rajiv Kumar (Vice Chairman, NITI Aayog and Chancellor Gokhale Institute of Politics and Economics, Pune, India)
- Prof Terry Barker (Honorary Professor, School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia, Founder and Trustee of the Cambridge Trust for New Thinking in Economics and Founder and Director of Cambridge Econometrics Ltd.)
Discussion and remarks by distinguished senior experts
Book contributors will highlight the relevance of modelling wider state level economic impacts of flagship government of India policies, including Make in India initiative, Atmanirbhar Bharat relief packages, India’s nationally determined commitments (NDC’s), and doubling farmer’s incomes.
