Building climate resilience has become the need of the hour to reduce climate change linked complications, prepare ourselves for future eventualities and protect both life and livelihood at the same time. Much damage has already been inflicted upon the planet through our relentless pursuit of development activities in the form of urbanisation and industrialisation. In this lecture, Dr Pranab will cover Indian experiences of combining sustainable technologies and skill development, where energy efficient low-carbon devices for cooking and heating are deployed at the grassroots level that can help reduce carbon emission, conserve forest resources and generate livelihood.
