Through this half day workshop, WRI India hopes to engage with experts from academia, government, and practitioners to inform a project aimed at identifying key intervention areas at the intersection of energy access and landscape restoration. The objective of this study is to find opportunities to effectively engage in this space and find the key enabling conditions and barriers. WRI India will present key findings from preliminary research in this space, and discuss interventions that can be scaled up in the Indian context.
Mission and Goals
WRI India’s mission is to move human society to live in ways that protect Earth’s environment and its capacity to provide for the needs and aspirations of current and future generations.
We organize our work around two critical goals in order to secure a sustainable future:
- Cities and Transport: Improve quality of life in cities by developing and scaling environmentally, socially and economically sustainable urban and transport solutions.
- Climate: Protect communities and natural ecosystems from damage caused by greenhouse gas emissions, and generate opportunities for people by catalyzing a global transition to a low-carbon economy.
We design solutions for and analyze the two critical goals through the lenses of our two Centers:
- Governance: Empower people and support institutions to foster socially equitable and environmentally sound decision-making.
- Business: Harness the private sector to spur action, innovation, and ambition in support of sustainable development outcomes. We combine research, analysis, tools, and direct engagement with businesses to create solutions that advance environmental sustainability and drive value.
