Pro-poor mobility solutions: Round table and report launch
TERI has recently completed a study on pro poor mobility issues under the aegis of the Global Energy Network for Urban Settlements (GENUS), a network established by the UN-HABITAT. The study report titled 'Pro-poor mobility - Policy guidelines and Case Studies' brings together fifty best practices from South and South East Asia, Africa and Latin America on improving mobility opportunities for poor and low income population. Pro-poor mobility solutions’: Round table and report launch
The report was launched by Mr A K Misra, Secretary, Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation on 28th June 2013 at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. In his inaugural remarks, Mr Misra highlighted the growing challenge of urban poverty and the role of inclusive mobility in addressing it. TERI conducted a day-long Round Table on 'Pro-poor mobility' on the occasion, which was attended by various key stakeholders from the government and non-government agencies. The discussions in the Round Table focused on mobility solutions for urban poor and low income commuter categories in the Indian cities.

TERI develops toolkits on Sustainable urban transport for MoUD
Under the aegis of the 'National Capacity Development in Urban Transport' programme of the Sustainable Urban Transport Project (SUTP) of the Government of India, TERI has prepared two toolkits for the Ministry of Urban Development on subjects related to sustainable urban transport planning.

1. Toolkit on Environmental analysis - Strategic Environmental Assessment and Environmental Impact Assessment
TERI develops toolkits on Sustainable urban transport for MoUD
The tool kit is aimed at helping the city officials to conduct Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of transport policies, plans and projects.
2. Toolkit on Transport Demand Management
The toolkit is aimed at helping the city officials in identifying and implementing appropriate Transport Demand Management (TDM) measures for their cities.
The toolkits have been accepted by the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) after validation workshops with city officials and review sessions with national and international experts organised by the Institute of Urban Transport (India).

Tales of Gorakhpur
TERI's documentary 'Tales of Gorakhpur - Path Towards a Climate - Resilient Future' was first screened at TERI - Rockefeller workshop on Resilient cities in January. Since then it has been promoted at several forums and has garnered rave reviews. It was screened at the Seventh Community Based Adaptation Forum (CBA7) in Bangladesh; 2013 Humanitarian Action Summit on Climate and Crisis at Harvard University and to a mixed batch of students at MIT, USA. Tales of Gorakhpur
The film tells the story of a city grappling with the dual pressures of urbanization and climate change. The film brings out the current vulnerability of Gorakhpur and questions whether the city is prepared for a future that is predicted to have even more rainfall and floods. In particular, it highlights the work of GEAG (Gorakhpur Environment Action Group) in preparing a climate resilience strategy for the city and the efforts of TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute) towards mainstreaming this strategy in the overall framework of laws and policies related to urban development.
