TERI undertakes first-of-its-kind audit for South Delhi

A major concern of air pollution in Delhi is the road dust that is generated as suspended particles during cleaning the roads. Traditionally, sweeping of roads is done manually, which causes the dust to remain floating in the air for some time, thus increasing the amount of suspended particulate matter (SPM) in the air.

The Green School project by TERI, in association with Tata Steel Limited, aims to create awareness and understanding about environmental issues in school campuses in the operational areas of Tata Steel. The project is meant to create awareness among students on climate change and the ways sustainable lifestyle can help mitigate the adverse impact of climate change. This is done by promoting environmental stewardship through both classroom and outdoor activities to improve students' critical, interdisciplinary and holistic thinking.

Electric Mobility Paradigm Shift: Capturing the Opportunities

| Transport

The electrification of road transport sector can be one of the pathways to reduce dependence on fossil fuel, and mitigate vehicular pollution. While there are several technologies like hybrid EV, plug-in hybrid vehicles, all electric/battery EV and fuel cell vehicles that can help achieve these objectives, this paper focuses only on all-electric/battery EV, with specific attention to passenger vehicles only.

Project STARs: Sustainable Tracking, Action and Reporting in Schools

December 27, 2017

Project STARs - a pioneering ESD project in the state of Goa explored the principles of sustainable development through the adoption of the 3C sustainable school concept. It was a three year project (2013-2016) jointly implemented by the Dempo Group of Companies, and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) across 10 schools in Goa. Project 'STARs' sought to inspire and encourage schools to practice the principles of sustainability by focusing on its environmental and socio-cultural performance.

Specific objectives of the project were to:

Ecological baseline assessment and biodiversity mapping of coastal ecosystem

December 27, 2017

A project supported by GIZ assesses the ecological baseline of the coastal marine protected area – the Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary in Chorao, Goa. The broad objectives of this project is conducting review and suggest participatory management of the Island estuarine ecosystem and to conduct baseline assessment of ecological status of the marine protected area.

Training and demonstration on crab and mussel farming

December 27, 2017

Projects supported by NABARD on the demonstration of mussel and crab farming actively engage and encourage the local fishing communities to undertake mariculture, as an adaptive measure to overcome the impacts of climate change and increasing anthropogenic activities, as well as providing options for livelihood diversification and stimulating healthy socio economic development in the area. We have been regularly conducting demonstration programme of mussel culturing in different coastal ecosystems such as estuaries, creeks and ponds to the coastal communities through CSR support.
