Naturenomics™ 6.0 (2016)

The Eastern Himalayas represent a very unique ecology. There is a very wide variation in the flora and fauna in the Himalayan zone because of the very steep ascent in the terrain in a very short distance.One moves from the sub-tropical to the temperate to icy desert in a very short spatial distance and this has spawned a very rich and rare bio-diversity which is a veritable ecological treasure house.The Eastern Himalayan Naturenomics™ Forum 2016, was conceptualized to tackle some of the key conservation issues confronting the Eastern Himalayas. In keeping with the central themes of the Forum 2016, we have compiled a set of articles and thought-pieces contributed by conservationists- experienced & aspiring. The compilation touches upon topics related to Asian Elephants, Biodiversity Landscapes, Technology in Conservation, and Conservation view points.

Naturenomics™ 4.0 Vol I & II (2012)

Optimizing Biodiversity and Social Security in Indian Mining Areas An Earthy Vision Volume – I Focusing on Social Security

Optimizing Biodiversity and Social Security in Indian Mining Areas An Earthy Vision Volume – II Focusing on Ecological and Biodiversity Security

Our fourth publication, "Naturenomics™ 4.0 Vol I & II " details what it would mean for industries to embrace Naturenomics™ in practice.

Naturenomics relates to capital formation through the creation of ecologically 'compliant' assets in a sustainable manner.

The current model of economic development forces us to make a choice between development & sustaining natural resources. Contrary to this belief, Naturenomics believes that this need not be a choice, but the only choice to have economic development alongwith sustaining our natural resources.

The publication is one of the many initiatives undertaken by Balipara Tract & Frontier Foundation, which is relentlessly working to ensure Social Security, Environmental Neutrality and Economic Integrity within the Indian mining areas, including making many recommendations on the associated framework, legislation, regulations etc.

The publications are bestowed with content-rich presentations and study papers from eminent and well known subject matter experts engaged in the domain of mining, sustainable development, environment and biodiversity.

Naturenomics™ 3.0 (2009)

An introduction to the concept of LEWWAC - Land, Energy, Water, Waste, Air, Carbon and the measurement of these resources utilization and pattern of consumption thereof.

We are hoping to create a bio-diversity knowledge bank and the chapter 'eco-restoration through bio-diversity parks' in another step towards this. The compilation highlights - 'green industry is smart industry' to be achieved through ecological competitiveness for ecological sustainability.

Naturenomics™ 2.0 (2008)

Our second publication, "Naturenomics™ 2.0" takes a step further to address the need for a changed economic model to address the changing circumstances of overuse of our Natural Resources.

An introduction to the concept of LEWWAC - Land, Energy, Water, Waste, Air, Carbon and the measurement of these resources utilization and patterns of consumption thereof.

We have focused on articles highlighting the current wealth of nations and genuine progress indicators. The most challenging concern of out time if food security therefore focus has been on whether food shortage will bring down our civilization!

Plan B 3.0 “Mobilizing to Save Civilization”

Introducing Lester R. Brown book Plan B 3.0 "Mobilizing to Save Civilization" in Hindi on 12th June, 2008 at New Delhi.

In his book, Brown points out that the answer is not in asking ourselves "What do politicians think is politically feasible?" but rather "What do we think is needed to prevent irreversible climate change?"

This is not Plan A: business-as-usual. This is Plan B: an all-out response at wartime speed proportionate to the magnitude of the threats facing civilization.

In the Plan B energy economy, wind, Brown proposes, is the centerpiece. It is abundant, low cost, and widely distributed; it scales easily and can be developed quickly. The goal is to develop at wartime speed 3 million megawatts of wind-generating capacity by 2020, enough to meet 40 percent of the world's electricity needs. This would require 1.5 million wind turbines of 2 megawatts each. These turbines could be produced on assembly lines by reopening closed automobile plants in the US, much as bombers were assembled in auto plants during World War II.
