Climate Change and its Implications on Technology Development

Climate change cannot be seen as an isolated phenomenon. It needs to be seen in association with sustainable development and efforts to eradicate poverty. This is a cyclic reaction and cannot be avoided. In this article, Dr Soumen Maity, Vice President, Development Alternatives Group highlights that India needs a massive effort on developing its infrastructure and assets, creating more industries, and the need for energy for all these. He asks, at what cost it will be done and who will bear the cost?


Green Building Technology | Eco Solutions | CLEAN Technology

A gradual shift towards a Low Carbon, Climate Resilient (LC-CR) development pathway requires creation of an enabling environment focused on three key factors, which are knowledge (building a technology base), finance (devising innovative mechanisms), and policy (strengthening the institutional framework). The Development Alternatives Group is working towards influencing this pathway at the regional, state, national, and global levels to increase awareness, acceptance, and adoption of cleaner production and construction materials and technologies.
