TERI Launches New Knowledge-Sharing Portal for Sustainable Development
14 February 2013: The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), supported by UK Government, has launched a web portal called "Knowledge x-change on Sustainable Development" (KxSD). The portal will seek to combine experiences and knowledge exchange among stakeholders, focusing on policy, technology and innovation, and community partnerships.
The contents are focused on India and organized under the themes of energy, climate change, natural resources, poverty & livelihoods, waste management, sustainable infrastructure, and health. Research and innovative practices, success stories, details about policy instruments and other knowledge resources targeted at policy makers and the wider research community are displayed. Each theme features news and stories divided into three clusters: policy instruments, an expert interview database called the "knowledge café," and resource updates. The policy instruments identified are energy efficiency, renewable energy and water. [KxSD website]
