The New Delhi-based Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has been ranked the top environmental policy think tank in India and 16th in the world by the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) of the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania.

  • Kudos to CSE for all those international and national rankings. Well done. What rankles is that this recognition comes from TTCSP of a US based university. What about all the 'honours' our government keep dishing out for all sorts of (often dubious) achievements? Despite such international recognition, i wonder how many of our government Think Tanks read CSE publications? We know little or nothing because have never read a response even to the most pressing issues raised by CSE from even bureaucrats (forget the ministers) occupying high and mighty seats in government. May be magazines like DTE don't make it to the tables of even idling babus?
