Assessing the co-benefits of a low carbon development pathway for India
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.
b) Carrying out meteorological and air quality simulations to predict Particulate Matter (PM) and Ozone concentrations across the study domain for current and future time scales
c) Estimating the impacts of PM and Ozone concentrations on human health and agricultural productivity
