In a collective effort by several Indian NGOs, another important issue of Mausam – meaning ‘climate’ in Hindi – was published in September 2009. With the aim to initiate persistent and critical dialogues in ‘public space’ on the capitalism-induced climate change and its bogus market solutions, i.e. CDM, the magazine addresses a series of issues and analyses climate policies in India. Moreover, it gives concrete analysis of certain CDM projects and scrutinizes companies and policies.
The current Mausam issue includes the following articles:
- Glimpses of ‘clean’ development in India
- Did the meteorological department mislead the nation on monsoon 2009?
- Monsoon’s extreme make over
- The Climate Politics Metals are obstructing political visions
- Dark are the clouds: concerns from Karnataka
