|| Crop-residue burning remains an important seasonal contributor to air pollution. Crop-residue burning emits particulate matter (both PM10 and PM2.5) and greenhouse gases (GHG), which deteriorates air quality in the Indo-Gangetic Plain. Many policies have been mandated in the past few years to address this challenge. Yet, alternative technologies and practices have not been adopted widely, and the practice of burning crop residue persists.
This webinar will discuss the transition in the incidence of crop burning over the years. It will also shed light on the policy interventions in place, as well as farmers’ perspectives based on primary data. We will also deliberate whether this year will witness a spike or decline in crop-residue burning in Punjab and Haryana.
