Climate Change & Environment > Overview
Local and global environmental issues, especially climate change, loom large with increasing risks. As the way forward, IRADe has adopted a multidisciplinary approach and carries out national projects for both climate mitigation and adaptation in the country. In climate change, IRADe intensively covers climate mitigation, adaptation and negotiations. Further, IRADe provides inputs using the activity analysis model in the area of low carbon pathways until 2030 and 2050 for Climate Policies in India.
As a member of NATCOM institutions and Indian Network on Climate Change Assessment (INCCA), IRADe assists in country reports and provides inputs on negotiating positions, arguments and policy suggestions to ensure equity principles. IRADe’s environment project portfolios include environmental accounting and valuation for Goa and Andhra Pradesh with a focus on tourism, waste management and water pollution. Biodiversity and Ecosystem management for Marine National Parks are also addressed.
