  • World Energy [R]evolution: A Sustainable India Energy Outlook

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 11, 2012
    Objective: 

    This report provides a practical pathway for India to secure its energy--particularly electricity supply--to achieve its long-term ambitious economic growth along with providing access to modern electricity technology to a population of 300 million who are still waiting to see light in their homes, while remaining low on the carbon growth trajectory.

  • Water, Crisis and Climate Change in India: A Policy Brief

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, October 1, 2011
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    According to this policy brief, although India has sizeable water resources, the country faces huge challenges in the water sector as water distribution varies widely by season and region. Pressure on and competition around water resources are increasing, not least from climate change. This policy brief gives an overview of the challenges India is facing in the water sector, and their potential to transform into local conflicts, by outlining some of the common and possible worsening conflict dynamics around water.

  • Water Sector in India: Emerging Investment Opportunities

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, September 1, 2011
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This study forecasts that the water demand in India, combining all sectors, will increase at a CAGR of 3% until 2030.The study highlights that the Indian water sector can create investment potential of about USD 130 billion by 2030. Some of such areas have been pointed out where private sector investors could participate and contribute to the water scarcity solutions through innovative and cost-effective technology use and secure return on their investment, mainly through water demand management, water supply management, water infrastructure upgradation and water utilities management.

  • Vulnerability and Adaptation to Climate Change: From Practice to Policy

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, December 5, 2006
    Objective: 

    This present report is an outcome of an international workshop organized by Winrock International India under the aegis of the BASIC project (Building and Strengthening Institutional Capacity on Climate Change). The report aimed to bring together the national and international scientists and policy makers to understand the scientific and social issues governing the adaptation process. The report focuses on five major aspects of adaptation are friendly to mitigation of climate change impacts on agriculture sector.

  • Use of Saline Water for Irrigation in Monsoon Climate and Deep Water Table Regions: Simulation Modeling with Swap

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 12, 2012
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    SWAP (Soil-Water-Atmosphere-Plant) version 2.0 was evaluated for its capability to simulate crop growth and salinity profiles under various combinations of fresh and saline water use for irrigation at Agra (India), located in a semiarid monsoon climatic region having a deep water table. Best available water (BAW, EC 3.6 dS/m) was used for pre-sowing irrigation to wheat. Simulated results confirmed that a yield potential exceeding 80% could be maintained by substituting saline waters up to 8 dS/m in the absence of fresh water following a pre-sowing irrigation with BAW.

  • Towards Climate Resilient Agriculture through Adaptation and Mitigation Strategies

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 

    This brochure is published by National Initiative on Climate Resilient Agriculture (NICRA), aims to enhance the resilience to climate change in Indian agricultural sector. It reports the available farm technologies that have adaptation potential in most vulnerable districts of the country through a participatory approach. It also calls for institutional interventions to promote literacy among farmers community.

  • The Energy Report - Kerala: 100% Renewable Energy by 2050

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 1, 2013
    Objective: 

    This project is an attempt to model the energy requirement across power, transport, agriculture, industry, domestic and commercial sectors of Kerala up to 2050 in order to assess the feasibility of meeting 100 per cent of the state"s energy demand with renewable sources.

  • Technology Roadmap: Low-Carbon Technology for the Indian Cement Industry

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 1, 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This roadmap outlines a possible transition path for the Indian cement industry to support the global goal of halving carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 2050. It estimates that the Indian cement industry would reduce its direct CO2 emissions intensity to 0.35tCO2/t cement in 2050, about 45 per cent lower than current levels. Despite this, the total emissions would grow from the current 137 MtCO2 to between 275 MtCO2 and 468 MtCO2 in 2050 due to rapid growth in cement demand and economic growth in India. The vision is ambitious but realistic.
