Patron, Journal of Innovation for Inclusive Development – JIID & Principal, Indraprastha College for Women, University of Delhi.
The Centre for Earth Studies, founded in 2016 by IP College, reflects its ongoing engagement with the state of our being and becoming, as inhabitants of Planet Earth. The Journal of Innovation for Inclusive Development has been envisaged as an integral part of the Centre’s activities. Conceptualized by the colleagues of the Department of Environmental Studies, the objective of the Journal is to produce a confluence of thoughts and ideas as well as the best practices prevalent in individual and institutional systems which speak to us of sustainability. The first issue presented here consists of invited research contributions. The subsequent issues will carry peer-reviewed articles.
Grateful thanks are owed to Dr. Govind Singh, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Studies, for his untiring efforts to uphold quality and create something of enduring value, in the form of this Journal. The College also thanks Dr. Anindita Roy Saha, Associate Professor in the Department of Economics and Teacher in Charge, Department of Environmental Studies. As the Coordinator of the Centre for Earth Studies, it is her unstinting support and encouragement which has made implementation of novel ideas and initiatives like this Journal possible.
