  • The project, in partnership with the Government of India and supported by AusAid, aims to upscale energy efficient interventions in the steel re-rolling mills sector and other sub-sectors of the small scale steel industry in India. This will enable mitigation of GHG emissions and lead to improvement in productivity.

  • Funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the Small Grants Programme (SGP) supports initiatives that demonstrate community-based, innovative, gender sensitive and participatory approaches. Under the programme, grants are made directly to community-based organizations (CBOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to support community-level initiatives that help conserve global biodiversity, mitigate climate change, protect international waters, reduce the impacts of persistent organic pollutants and prevent land degradation while generating sustainable livelihoods.In India, the programme has been supported through the Centre for Environment Education (CEE) since 2000.

  • This project will support efforts to strengthen capacities of government, communities and institutions to accelerate implementation of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation plans.

  • In partnership with Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change, Government of India, the project aims to develop capacities of key institutions, officials and other stakeholders to manage the emerging challenges related to conservation.

  • In partnership with Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India, funded by Global Environment Facility, the project aims to enable India undertake activities to prepare its Third National Communication to the UNFCCC according to the guidelines provided by the Conference of Parties (COP) for non-Annex 1 countries (17/CP.8).

  • Scale-up of Access to Clean Energy for Rural Productive and Domestic Use (2015-2019)

    In partnership with Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India, funded by Global Environment Facility, the project aims to demonstrate and develop the market for Renewable Energy Technology Packages for Rural Livelihoods (RETPRLs) in three selected states—Assam, Odisha and Madhya Pradesh. The RETPRLs include: solar lighting systems; solar and/or biomass waste–powered micro grids for common facilities; solar irrigation pumps; improved commercial biomass cook-stoves; poultry-litter-based biogas plants; poultry-litter-based briquetting units; solar dryers for vegetables, spices and fish; solar-powered milk chillers; and cold rooms for storage of horticultural produce. The target livelihood sectors include poultry, fisheries, dairy, horticulture, khadi (homespun cloth) and silk weaving, bamboo, and commercial cooking (e.g. tea stalls, sweet shops and street food vendors).

  • Energy Efficiency Improvements in the India Brick Industry (2009-2016)

    The manufacturing of bricks typically using traditional firing technologies consume resources such as soil, energy and cause significant air pollution. The objective of this project, in partnership with the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India, funded by Global Environment Facility is to promote the production of resource efficient bricks.

  • In partnership with the Ozone Cell (Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change, Government of India), United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Government of Germany, the project aims to facilitate India’s compliance with the Montreal Protocol control targets for consumption of Annex-C, Group-I substances (HCFCs) for 2013 and 2015, with minimal impacts on the national economy, environment and health. To achieve this, the aim is to implement a combination of interventions such as technology transfer investments, policy and regulatory actions, technical assistance, training and capacity-building, awareness generation and monitoring in selected HCFC consuming sectors.
