Towards Upscaling the Application of Low-Carbon and...

picto-resource
The Indian construction sector has a high ecological and carbon footprint. With increasing urbanisation and growth in India, the impacts of the construction sector will only increase. Low-carbon and resource-efficient technologies exist and could substantially reduce the ecological footprint of the sector were they dominant. In order to mainstream these technologies, it is essential for policy makers to streamline policies and develop guidelines that include a green mandate.

Mainstreaming Sustainable Affordable Housing in India

picto-resource
The urban housing shortage in India is currently estimated at 18.75 million, more than 95% of which pertains to low-income groups. In addition, the housing sector is by definition an energy and resource intensive sector leading to a large environmental burden on the Earth's natural resources. This video highlights the need for more sustainable options in order to meet the housing demand as well as conserve our natural resources.

Tapping Resource Efficiency Potential in India

picto-resource
Cities contribute to 80% of the economic growth, while also comsuming 75% of the world’s natural resources. India is witnessing rapid urbanisation, with approximately 31% of its population living in cities. This trajectory requires us to find a way of achieving economically and socially equitable growth, without further damaging the environment. The concept of resource efficiency, i.e. of 'doing more with less' has significantly caught on in India's recent developmental paradigm.
