  • 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.

  • Energy Transition for Industry: India and the Global Context

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 1, 2011

    A truly global and integrated energy technology revolution is essential to address the intertwined challenges of energy security and climate change while also meeting the growing energy needs of the developing world. For India to play its part in realising the global goals of the BLUE scenario, it will need to achieve rapid economic development over the next 40 years with only a very small increase in CO2 emissions. Currently there is no precedent for such a low_CO2 development path.

  • Strategies for Poverty Alleviation in India: CYSD's Holistic Approach to Empowerment Through the Self-help Group Model

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, October 1, 2003
    Objective: 

    Providing credit is the primary goal of microfinance projects. But on its own this can be an ineffective response to chronic poverty. Research from India has shown that projects which take a broader approach can yield surprising results. A report from India's Utkal University describes the model of self-help groups used by the Centre for Youth and Social Development (CYSD). Questioning conventional wisdom in the microfinance industry, it argues that credit by itself will never lift marginalised women out of poverty.

  • Participatory Action Learning in Practice: Experience of a Rapid Participatory Review of ANANDI, India

    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 1, 2003
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    How can a Participatory Action Learning System (PALS) help to empower women? ANANDI, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) based in Gujarat, India, successfully used PALS to support women from poor and marginalised groups to identify, analyse and solve their own problems. Women assessed their levels of poverty and food security and spoke for the first time about personal experiences of domestic violence. They explained that empowerment for them meant having a livelihood, doing men's work, having livestock, and visiting the panchayat (village council) office.
