Evaluation of ‘heat action’ plans finds major gaps
Amid prediction of more number of heatwaves this summer, the Centre for Policy Research (CPR) has critically assessed India’s 37 ‘heat action plans’ (HAPs), comprising of dos and don’ts for authorities and the general public, in 18 states and found major gaps at different levels noting how it lack location-specificity, vulnerability assessments, financing and transparency.
The New Delhi-based think tank CPR has also found out that none of the reviewed HAPs indicate the legal sources of their authority and nearly all plans fail to identify and target vulnerable groups.
The HAPs are guidance documents prepared by state, district and city governments to help prepare for, respond to, and recover and learn from heatwaves. One of their most important functions is to direct scarce healthcare, financial, information, and infrastructural resources to those most vulnerable to extreme heat in that jurisdiction. Though the exact number of HAPs in India is unknown, some estimates claim the existence of well over 100 nation-wide HAPs.
