He is playing a transformative role within the education sector in Punjab and his present venture is backed by leading philanthropists like Amit Chandra, Deep Kalra, BK Kalra and Suman Munjal.



Hello, Simranpreet great to have you here.


Before we begin, a brief yet invigorating snapshot of Punjab province/state. Punjab, is a popular, multicultural and dimensional province/state in India, known for world class artistic urban locations, green agricultural belt, amicable and diverse culture that defines the fabric of Indian diaspora. Its capital Chandigarh, also the joint capital of Haryana (a state in India) and a Union Territory, is one of the most elegant & urban cities in the world known for its architectural and visual splendour. Chandigarh’s master plan was designed by the world-famous architect Le Corbusier, (Lu Corbosieer) and the city is home to the iconic Rock Garden and Capitol Complex. Famous architects like Albert Mayer, Pierre Jeanneret (Pier Jenhai), Jane Drew and Maxwell Fry have designed city’s housing and buildings based on information shared by WHC UNESCO. 


Chandigarh Capitol Complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the city was the first planned city post-Indian independence. Chandigarh leads in the human development index in India and has the highest capital per person in the country. Amritsar, a spiritual city for many especially Sikhs, is a major city in Punjab and houses The Golden Temple (also known as the Harmandir Sahib). Ludhiana is the 
most populous and the commercial capital of the state of Punjab. The World Bank rated Ludhiana with the best business environment in 2009 and 2013, the city is an industrial powerhouse, producing more than 50 percent of Indian bicycles. 



Q). Simran, how did your experience at various places and your education at Ashoka University prepare for your work at Sanjhi Sikhiya Foundation? I also had a chat with Anu Prasad here who played a fundamental role in setting up Ashoka University. 



Q). You worked in diverse roles at various foundations including the present CSR work at Genpact. How did it enable and facilitate a transition as a cofounder of your present non-profit? Let’s begin with your Genpact experience and as a chief project officer at Shoshit Samadhan Kendra (SSK), what were your observations and learnings in schooling for children in the underserved  Musahar community. You wore multiple hats in this profile. Share your story. 



Ask follow up questions here. 



Q). How did the idea of invigorating and educating the youth in the rural region of Punjab occur to you? The Indian primary education system needs an overhauling. 15% of the students in grade 8 could not read grade 2 text. India spent 3.8% of its GDP on education in 2019 compared to a Global average of 4.8% according to UNDP Human Development Report 2019. The figure for Nepal was 5.1%, US 5%, Finland 7.1% for 2019. Finland is a world leader in inventiveness in K12
Episode 28: Social Impact Special on Understanding Biodiversity Today, I (Nishant Malhotra - Sole Founder of The middle Road thought leader platform) will be covering a brief overview of the Biodiversity Ecosystem. In this educational video/podcast, you will know the origins of the Convention on Biological Diversity, the risks facing the global environment landscape, and the social and economic importance of nature-based systems. It's prudent to know about the Strategic Plan for biodiversity from 2011 to 2020 with a peek at the Global Status of Aichi Biodiversity Goals. The module focuses on the financial tools & metrics to achieve biodiversity goals with a brief overview of Sustainable Finance as an enabler.

 

Convention of Biological Diversity CBD, is the apex body overlooking the biodiversity sector and is the apex body enabling social change and impact within biological diversity globally. CBD was formed in 1992 during the Foundation United Nations Conference on Environment and Development also known as the Rio "Earth Summit". An international legal instrument, CBD's mandate is to drive the Global Framework of Biodiversity. Today 194 countries have ratified the agreement. The mission of CBD is to Encourage actions that lead to a Sustainable Future, its governing body termed COP or Conference of Parties, CBD has authority over all the signatories. 

 

So, what do we mean by Biodiversity?

In a broader sense Convention on Biological Diversity represents a dramatic step forward in the Conservation of biological diversity, the Sustainable use of its components, and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of benefits arising from the use of genetic resources.”

 

The areas under biodiversity are broad- divided into Ecosystems, Species, and Genetic Resources. It operates in all these domains and much more. The convention of Biological Diversity is under the umbrella of the United Nations Environment Program. Listed names of some important actors/entities and initiatives within this space. Example of few entities/actors within this space are as follows. The Nature Conservancy is the largest environmental nonprofit in the world with World Wide Fund for Nature dominating conservation of natural habitat. ICMA is the driver of sustainable bonds principles, Iceberg Data Lab is one of the drivers of metrics for estimating Biodiversity footprint. 

 

Why is preserving, nurturing, and enhancing Biodiversity so important? To begin with we have a looming Global Environmental Crisis. According to a report, the natural ecosystem has declined by 47% from the earliest recorded state. According to the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), human actions have significantly altered the natural environment. About 75% of the land-based environment and roughly 66% of the marine environment. With one million species under threat of extinction, the loss of biodiversity has a significant impact on the wellbeing and wellness of society. To top it all, The Biodiversity Finance Initiative (BIOFIN) estimates annual funding needs between $150 to $440 billion but $52 billion is spent per year. This translates into a gap of $98 billion to $388 billion per year. Further, WEF estimates more than half of the world’s GDP is exposed to the risk of nature loss.

 

Nature-Based Solutions and Transitions not only solves the equation of ecological imbalances enabling sustainable wellbeing for everyone but also have significant quantifiable achievements. Business for Nature and ICC estimates nature-based transitions will lead to $10 trillion in the business opportunity, generating 395 million jobs by 2030. For countries example India where a majority of jobs are in the unorganized sector, nature-based solutions are a panacea for enabling social change and impact for the less privileged people of the society. Nature Based Solutions can lead to one third of the net reductions in greenhouse gas emissions required to meet the Paris Agreement’s goals based on the Global Biodiversity Outlook 5.

The graph of alternative and nuclear energy as a percentage of total energy for the World, OECD member countries and the US is increasing at a steady rate. Note: Clean energy is noncarbohydrate energy that does not produce carbon dioxide when generated. It includes hydropower and nuclear, geothermal, and solar power, among others.  The figure for the world has shot up to about 13.35% in 2015 from 8.26% in 2010 as percent of total energy. The value for OECD member countries is similar with US is roughly 11.87%. This confirms that over the period the world is moving towards sustainable living.

To have a fantastic overview of how the world performed during the last decade on key performance indicators, let’s look at the multilateral treaty Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020. Under this treaty, Aichi Biodiversity Targets were set for the deca
Episode 27: Social Impact Special on Biodiversity with Nishant Malhotra Hello,

 

A very warm welcome to a very insightful and informative podcast from The middle Road platform. This is Nishant Malhotra, your host discussing a special social impact story on Biodiversity.

In today's educational podcast, I will share an overview of the biodiversity sector, why the persevering biodiversity sector is key to a more equitable future, its impact on the society observed through the financial sector, sustainable finance, tools, metrics used to measure the impact of human interaction and policies on nature conservation and restoration. Recently, The middle Road became a member of the European Union Business @ Biodiversity platform, a global thought-leading platform enabling social change and impact within the biodiversity-ecosystem. The middle Road is a thought leadership terminal blending Media and EdTech for a more sustainable and equitable future. Key sources of references are Finance for Biodiversity Guide on biodiversity measurement approaches, Positive Impact Finance for Business & Biodiversity, EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 among others.

 
Why is Biodiversity so important and what do we mean by the term Biodiversity?  
 


Biodiversity is defined as ‘the diversity of species, variation of genes and different ecosystems’ (Term used by the Convention on Biological Diversity, CBD).

About a million species are under threat of extinction, and based on World Economic Forum more than 50 percent of the World’s Global GDP are dependent on nature and exposed to the risk of alteration of the natural habitat. This analysis forms the bedrock of the importance of nature for the social development of humanity. International Monetary Fund, World Economic Outlook Database, October 2021, estimates global GDP for selected countries to be $95.6 trillion approximately. According to World Bank national accounts data, and OECD National Accounts data files, the top five countries the United States, China, Japan, Germany, and the United Kingdom’s combined GDP accounted for 52.2 trillion approximately, accounting for 55.2% of the World GDP.  The inequitable distribution of national wealth shows the increasing responsibility of a few nations to drive the sustainable development agenda. Based on a report by Business for Nature & ICC, a nature-based transition could lead to $10 trillion in business opportunity creating 395 million jobs by 2030.

 

The pandemic has shown the importance of preserving nature for bettering humans’ response to the wellbeing of society. One of the major reports to be published on the economic impact on this subject matter is Das Gupta’s The Economics of Biodiversity: The Dasgupta Review. The above analysis underpins the importance of biodiversity, both social and economic importance to the world. United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (popularly known as Rio "Earth Summit") started the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) on 22 May 1992 where the adoption of the agreed text of Convention on Biological Diversity took place. The proliferation of worldwide drive towards sustainable development led to an accelerated focus towards facilitating policies for enhancing thought leadership for biodiversity.


In the words of CBD “It represents a dramatic step forward in the conservation of biological diversity, the sustainable use of its components, and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the use of genetic resources.”

Looking at the enormity of the social and economic problem, multiple actors came together to work out a comprehensive plan to develop a framework for understanding positive biodiversity impact within the financial parlance. To devise policies, measure social and economic loss: - policymakers, social impact practitioners, financial intuitions and corporates need to understand the positive impact for financial institutions. To understand more about biodiversity and financial institutions let’s look at Finance for Biodiversity Pledge group. Finance for Biodiversity Pledge launched by a group of six financial institutions on 25 September 2020 , today has 84 members. The members have set minimum standards to achieve by 2024 ( reverse and conserve nature loss)  example collaboration among various actors within the business and social ecosystem, set targets, engage with companies, access impact, and report publicly making the process more transparent.

Positive Impact Finance is defined in UNEP-FI’s Positive Impact Finance Manifesto as “that which verifiably produces a positive impact on the economy, society or the environment once any potential negative impacts have been duly identified and mitigated”.
 

Understanding of positive and neg

 # The Ongoing Pandemic 

2021 will go down as the fastest vaccine rollout, yet the vaccination against the novel coronavirus is riddled with vaccine inequality. The share of fully vaccinated people in low income countries still hovers around 4 percent. Compare this to ~70% fully vaccinated rate in high-income countries and 72% in Upper Middle-Income countries as per data shared by Our World in Data as of 30 December 2021. As of today, the cumulative cases exceed 284 million, registered deaths overtaking 5.4 million with actual figures much higher than the reported figures.

 

The emergence of Omicron further exacerbated the problem for global recovery. Omicron is now the most dominant strain in the US and exploded in Europe. First reported in South Africa on 24 November 2021, the new variant accounts for 73% of cases as per the CDC report for mid-December. CDC’s national genomic surveillance efforts are statistically powered to detect a variant that is circulating at 0.1% with 99% confidence and can monitor changes over time. To know more confidence intervals, refer to the online courses’ statistics modules on The middle Road. Both the World Bank and IMF took out packages to fine-tune the global asymmetries caused to the pandemic. The World Bank Group has committed $157 billion since the beginning of the pandemic while IMF proposed a $50 billion plan in 2021 enabling social change impact within the global arena. This pandemic has seen upwards of $16 trillion stimuli, the largest amount in modern history to fight the novel coronavirus. African Development Bank and Asian Development Bank are other multilateral that stood out for their work during the pandemic. Asian Development Bank announced a $20 billion dollar to support its developing countries in April 2020 and the $9 billion APVAX vaccine initiative announced in December 2020 offers support for its member countries for an equitable and safe rollout of COVID-19 vaccines. According to many estimates, the COVID-19 crisis has caused the worst recession since World War 2 with Global Debt standing at $296 trillion by Q3, 2021, according to the Institute of International Finance.

 

World Bank and UNESCO define learning poverty as children unable to read and understand a simple text by the age of 10. Based on a World Bank study, out of 720 million primary school children, 382 million of them are learning poor. Poor learning skills are one of the most significant barriers to eradicating poverty. The COVID-19 pandemic could increase an additional 72 to 454 million students into learning poverty. With prolonged school closures, learning poverty would prevail in about 70 percent of low- and medium-income countries.

                                              

                                              2021 saw a continued refugee crisis 

 

According to UNHCR 35,000 refugees are uprooted in Sudan; Afghanistan faces an economic collapse.
