Assessing the co-benefits of a low carbon development pathway for India

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Air

The objective of the project is to estimate co-benefits of the GHG mitigation strategies on air quality, human health and agricultural productivity. This calls for the following: a) Preparation of high-resolution emission inventory based on energy modelling results of the MARKAL/TIMES model for the policy scenarios developed under the on-going WRI/TERI study.

Evaluation of modelling techniques for air quality management in Delhi

November 5, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Air

The project aims to use established modelling techniques for spatial mapping of air pollutants in the city of Delhi using the data of existing monitoring stations. The spatial maps will provide information about air pollutant levels in all locations of the city. This will help in identification of air pollution hotspots in the city in order to take corrective actions.
