GREEN ACCOUNTING FOR INDIAN STATES AND UNION TERRITORIES PROJECT (GAISP, a project of GIST)
Incorporating unaccounted ecosystem services, agricultural impacts, mining impacts and educational capital into India's national and state accounts. For this project, Green Indian States Trust (GIST) - whose Trustees have set up GIST Advisory - measured sustainable development at the state level in India, sourcing data from official national databases. GAISP's results are available through a series of monographs (click here to read more), which account for externalities such as the non-marketed services of forests (carbon storage, biodiversity values, ecological services, etc.), the hidden costs of agriculture, losses in freshwater quality and depletion of sub-soil assets & vast unrecorded gains in human capital.
