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.

The objective of the project was to develop emission standards for PM and gaseous pollutants from diesel locomotives.

Climate policy assessment and Mitigation Modelling to Integrate national and global Transition pathways (COMMIT)

December 22, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Climate science | Environment

The Paris Agreement's central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping global temperature increase well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit it even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Endocrine Disruptors in Indian Food: minimizing children exposure and fostering a safer space for agriculture and food market (EDIFY)

December 1, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Environment | Agriculture | Health & Nutrition

The main objectives of this project are to: i) conduct a comprehensive assessment of exposure of the Indian population to endocrine disrupting substances (EDS)through the diet (food and water); ii) assess climate and anthropological drivers controlling levels of EDS in drinking water and agricultural products;
