Indian Himalayas Climate Adaptation Programme

01.01.2016 - 31.12.2019

The sensitivity of the Indian Himalayan Region (IHR) to changes in global climate has been recognised and given priority by the Government of India. However, knowledge and scientific information on climate change impacts on the IHR is still limited and capacities to adapt are weak. The Indian Himalayas Climate Adaptation Programme (IHCAP) aims at bridging the knowledge gap on climate change impacts and response measures by supporting collaborative research, capacity building and knowledge exchange and dissemination.

Capacity Building for Low Carbon and Climate Resilient City Development in India (CapaCITIES)

01.10.2014 - 31.05.2019

India is rapidly urbanising. The growing Indian cities are increasingly affected by climate change. At the same time, they are becoming important sources of greenhouse gas emissions. of the project CapaCITIES aims at enabling climate responsive urban planning in four partner cities, supporting sectoral measures for adapting to the effects of climate change and for reducing greenhouse gas emissions as well as fostering knowledge exchange and dissemination.


Strengthening State Strategies for Climate Actions (3SCA)

01.01.2014 - 31.12.2019

India recently approved State level Actions Plans to address Climate Change (SAPCCs). However, institutional capacities for implementing these plans are weak. Through this project, the Global Programme Climate Change (GPCC) will support the operationalisation of SAPCCs in three states in India (Uttarakhand, Sikkim and Madhya Pradesh) by strengthening capacities in planning and implementing relevant climate actions across select sectors including water, disaster management, forest and energy.

Food security knowledge platform and policy dialogue India

01.08.2013 - 31.12.2016

India, a potent emerging economy of 1.3 billion people, has an endemic food insecurity affecting hundreds of millions of people today and is home of half of the world’s malnourished children. Complex societal structures and political deficiencies are part of the challenge. The present project aims at increasing the policy coherence for effective action to improve food and nutrition security. It will do so by bringing new evidence on the fundamental problems to be tackled, and by stimulating the dialogue between people and institutions engaged in poverty reduction, agricultural production, food distribution and economic development in the States of Gujarat, Bihar and Andhra Pradesh. Their joint engagement for better policies should help reduce food insecurity sustainably.

Indo-Swiss Collaboration in Biotechnology (ISCB)

01.01.2013 - 31.10.2017

In the context of increasing global challenges, rapid demographic changes, degradation of natural resources and impact of climate change, the Indo-Swiss Collaboration in Biotechnology develops innovative products with the aim to improve food security, sustainable and climate resilient agriculture. Swiss and Indian research institutions join forces in a partnership to develop products that are oriented towards market integration. Based on a long-standing partnership the new phase will particularly endeavour to focus research on farmers’ needs and to better integrate innovations in a value-chain approach.

TERI - SDC Project on Biomass

01.01.2011 - 31.08.2017

SDC's Global Programme on Climate Change recognises that the shift towards a low carbon development model requires the promotion of clear energy systems based on renewable'energy. The use of decentralised energy systems based on biomass gasification technology offer one such opportunity. Relevance of intervention; Rural areas in India suffer from lack of quality electncity supply. Decentralised power generation is promoted through all the programmes of Govt of India, Many small industries in India and remote infrastructure establishment such as communication towers are exploring energy solutions that are based on renewable energy resources. The use of biomass gasification technology for heat and power applications is an area of growing relevance. The Govt of India's mission to Green India acknowledges the role of forests in providing livelihoods to local communities and also their role in protecting the forest resource This offers a new opportunity to organise the biomass supply for clean energy use in a sustainable manner.
