Assessing the co-benefits of a low carbon development pathway for India

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Air

The objective of the project is to estimate co-benefits of the GHG mitigation strategies on air quality, human health and agricultural productivity. This calls for the following: a) Preparation of high-resolution emission inventory based on energy modelling results of the MARKAL/TIMES model for the policy scenarios developed under the on-going WRI/TERI study.

Emission inventory and modelling of air pollution in India

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Air | Environment

TERI has been working on developing emission inventories of various air pollutants at both national and urban scales. The existing database of the inventory for the national scale is for the year 2011 at a res of 36/36 sq. km covering multiple sources and pollutants like PM, NOx, SO2, CO and NMVOCs.

Training and demonstration on crab and mussel farming

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project

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.

Mapping, identification of molecular markers associated with heat tolerance QTLs in tomato

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Agriculture

Tomato is one of the most significant vegetable crops grown worldwide. However, important traits such as pollen meiosis, germination, ovule development, viability and development of the embryo and fruit set of most tomato cultivars are adversely affected under temperatures higher than 35°C. This leads to non-availability in certain months.

Ecological baseline assessment and biodiversity mapping of coastal ecosystem

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project

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.

Engineering the Nodulation Signaling Pathway in Rice Plant

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Agriculture

The study aims to engineer Nodulation signal perception mechanism in rice plant. This is a critical step in paving way for the development of N2-fixing symbiosis in this cereal crop to enable it to synthesise its own nitrogen fertiliser for its growth, akin to legumes.
