Forest Sector Review of the Chhattisgarh State Action Plan for Climate Change
This report reviews the forestry aspects of Chhattisgarh State Action Plan for Climate Change in the light of India’s Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) and recommends intense incremental approach to adaptation to climate change in the forest ecosystems that also proactively enhances mitigation opportunities consistent with the centrality of adaptation, and combines it with a transformational approach for reducing vulnerabilities of the forest dependent communities. The final report was publishedin September 2016 and efforts are being undertaken for incorporation of recommendations in the state policy with the State Forest Department. This study was conducted with the support from ACT programme by DFID.
Scoping study on Public Transport in Raipur
A study on public transport in Raipur, the costs of improving public transport and role of travel demand management in financing public transport was undertaken in 2015-16. The study report scoped possibility of emission reduction and discussed issues around credits of emission reduction. Final report was submitted to State Transport Department, Municipal Corporation and Naya Raipur Development Authority(NRDA).
Vulnerability Assessment of Chhattisgarh towards Climate Change
The study is focused on generating district level Composite Vulnerability Index (CVI) for Chhattisgarh state. The composite indices would facilitate the identification of districts, which are vulnerable to climate change and need special attention towards adaptation. Vulnerability to climate change in Chhattisgarh has been derived using integrated vulnerability assessment approach. Accordingly social, economic (socio-economic) and agriculture, water resource, health, climate and forest (environmental), indicators of vulnerability are employed and classified into adaptive capacity, sensitivity, and exposure. To analyze the data, multivariate statistical method of Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is performed to obtain the Component Scores and Eigen values.
Climate Resilient Agriculture strategy for Chhattisgarh : Impacts and Recommendations
This report, “Climate Resilient Agriculture strategy for Chhattisgarh: Impacts and Recommendations” was undertaken on the basis of the findings of a long-term planning exercise undertaken for the Action on Climate Today-Climate Change Innovation Programme (ACT-CCIP) in collaboration with different stakeholders, principally from government. A need for a study is also identified in the Chhattisgarh State Action Plan on Climate Change, and this was backed by the State Centre for Climate Change within the State Forestry Research and Training Centre.
Water Resource Management for Improved Climate Resilience in Chhattisgarh part of Mahanadi River Basin
The Mahanadi River is the lifeline for major economic activities in the state of Chhattisgarh and supplies water for municipal uses to major cities like Raipur; to industrial areas like Durg and irrigates several thousands of hectares of agriculture land. The basin, however, displays high degree of heterogeneity in its characteristics. Droughts are prevalent in the central part of the basin in Chhattisgarh whereas eastern coastal region in Odisha is prone to floods and cyclones. Thus, future impacts of climate change on water resources could potentially adversely affect the livelihoods and economy of the State. Action on Climate Today (ACT), a programme to integrate climate change into Indian policies, plans and budgets at national and state-government levels, undertook a rigorous Long Range Planning Exercise (LRPE) to identify the larger and longer-term initiatives that can help build climate resilience in the State of Chhattisgarh.
