Online survey of choice cyclists in India
TERI is carrying out an online survey in Indian cities to understand the cycling pattern of choice cyclists i.e. cyclists who cycle as a matter of choice and not compulsion. We would like to invite you to participate in this survey.
Even if you are not cycling currently, we would still request you to respond to the survey and help us understand why you don't cycle and what would persuade you to cycle.
Two respondents selected through lucky draw will win an 'Urban Trail Dude Bicycle' sponsored by HERO cycles.

Learning about urban resilience from pioneer Indian cities
TERI recently published a working paper titled 'Urban Climate Resilience: A review of the methodologies adopted under the ACCCRN initiative in Indian cities' with support from the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), London. The paper analyses and compares the methodologies adopted by seven Indian cities- Surat, Indore, Gorakhpur, Shimla, Mysore, Bhubaneswar and Guwahati for preparing their climate resilience strategies as part of the Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN) initiative. Learning about urban resilience from pioneer Indian cities
The paper provides insights into the replication potential of the various methodologies and brings out the challenges and opportunities in building climate resilience in Indian cities.

Introducing electric vehicles in the Sunderbans
In partnership with the Paris-based charitable trust, Mlinda Foundation, TERI is installing 'smart' solar charging stations for solar based electric vehicles in the Sunderbans region in West Bengal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At present, public transportation in the Sunderbans is provided by around 19,000 diesel rickshaws. Replacing diesel rickshaws with electric vehicles will help in protecting the fragile ecology of the region from potential threats of fossil fuel emissions; clean electricity will
Introducing electric vehicles in the Sunderbans
ensure that there are no life cycle emissions of the transport mode. The intervention is also expected to create awareness about renewable energy as an economically and environmentally feasible alternative.

Webinar on Climate Resilient Cities
TERI organized a webinar on 'Climate Resilient Cities' on 22 January 2014. The webinar focused on the need for building climate change resilient cities. The webinar presented case studies of Indian cities who have undertaken urban resilience planning exercises and developed city resilience strategies. The webinar was well received and was attended by over 100 participants from all over the world.

Civil society forums on vehicular emissions
TERI recently organized two civil society forums in Delhi and Kolkata on introducing clean fuels and reducing vehicular emissions for better air quality in India. The forums were organised with support from DFID and Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation respectively.
The forum in Delhi deliberated upon the concerns of deteriorating air quality, its health impacts and the role of cleaner vehicles and fuels in combating the challenge. Dr. R. K. Pachauri, Director General, TERI while addressing the forum emphasized the need for stringent policy measures to control vehicular emissions and their impact on public health.
Civil society forums on vehicular emissions
During the forum, TERI along with the TERI University and the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), USA presented the results of their studies on vehicular emissions and health impacts.
The forum in Kolkata was organised in collaboration with the West Bengal Pollution Control Board (WBPCB). It focused on sensitizing key stakeholders on the issue of clean vehicles and fuels for air quality improvements. The forum also discussed key strategies for controlling air pollution in urban centres.
Both these forums recommended adoption of advanced and uniform vehicular emissions and fuel quality standards in the country at the earliest possible date.
