    Even though Haryana has one of the highest per-capita income in India, it continues to be perform poorly in malnutrition. According to NFHS 5 data, children under the age of 5 years who are stunted and wasted stand at ~26% and ~11% respectively.

    भले ही हरियाणा की प्रति व्यक्ति आय भारत में सबसे अधिक में से एक है, फिर भी कुपोषण में हरियाणा का खराब प्रदर्शन रहा है। NHFS 5 के मुताबिक, 5 साल से कम उम्र के बच्चे जो बौने और कमजोर हैं, उनकी संख्या क्रमश: ~26 फीसदी और ~11 फीसदी है। कम उम्र में कुपोषण, व्यक्ति के जीवन, स्वास्थ्य और उत्पादकता पर कहर बरपाता है।

    5 वर्ष से कम आयु के बच्चों में कुपोषण से प्रभावी ढंग से निपटने के लिए साक्ष्य आधारित लघु और मध्यम अवधि के समाधानों को लागू करने के लिए हरियाणा सरकार के लिए एक योजना का सुझाव दें।। (500 शब्द)

    You are working with the Haryana Government to address the challenge. You are required to propose 3 interventions to solve the problem sustainably. (500 words)

    खेतों में फसल अवशेषों (पराली) को जलाने से उत्तर भारत में वायु प्रदूषण में काफी योगदान होता है। हरियाणा में धान की पराली जलाना सर्दी की शुरुआत के दौरान हवा की गुणवत्ता को प्रभावित करने का एक प्रमुख कारण है। 2021 में हरियाणा में लगभग 9,000 खेतों में आग की गिनती हुई है।

    आप इस चुनौती से निपटने के लिए हरियाणा सरकार के साथ काम कर रहे हैं। समस्या को स्थायी रूप से हल करने के लिए आपको 3 हस्तक्षेपों का प्रस्ताव देना होगा। (500 शब्द)
