The world is on the brink of ‘missing a closing moment’ in history to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees centigrade above pre-industrial levels and to achieve the sustainable development goals by 2030. If the world fails to act, temperatures are likely to rise to 3.2 degrees centigrade by the end of this century, leading to devastating impacts. How does India meet the challenge of transitioning to a low-carbon economy and provide clean energy, food security, jobs and a better quality of life to its 1.4 billion population? How does it ensure that this transition is economically viable and socially inclusive? These questions are at the heart of TERI’s research, while working across policy research, technology development, consultancy and implementation projects. Nearing five decades of its journey since it was established in 1974, TERI remains committed and ambitious to help India and the world create a sustainable, healthy and equitable future for all.
