Crews have recently returned from mapping different ecologically sensitive areas in Kerala. The detailed field exercise was taken to verify the areas identified in the high level working group led by K. Kasturirangan. These maps are now being combined into a GIS to plot their location and extents.
Cities in Southeast Asia (SEA) are growing twice as fast as the rest of the world and by 2030, it is expected that 70 percent of SEA population will live in cities. Meeting the growing energy demands in these cities, and managing emissions sill aid both their environmental and economic health. Adopting green energy approaches while addressing growing infrastructure needs could place SEA cities at the forefrong of green growth worldwide. By improving energy efficiency and reducing GHG emissions, cities not only help the global environment, but they also support local economic development through productivity gains, reduced pollution, and more efficient use of resources.
