Who are we?

Incorporated in 2010, our community-led programs on climate action has covered over 4 million rural households across the South Asian region of Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka & Myanmar, contributing substantially to the global fight on climate change and providing a better way of life for climate vulnerable communities in developing and least developed countries. We have also been able to engage with businesses to address issues of social responsibility and environmental sustainability along their supply chain and more recently, to engage upon climate action projects in line with the Paris Agreement.

Our Solutions

Climate
Adaptation

Our climate action programs are built around the thematic areas of sustainable agriculture, social forestry, water management, waste management and access to energy. Our work here includes identifying the implementation gaps to create project designs which address immediate societal threats in vulnerable ecosystems and develop ecological solutions translating to sustainable livelihoods.

Carbon Mitigation
& Sequestration

Our signature emission reduction programs solutions are innovative, social development based and quality-focused. With numerous projects in the areas of social forestry, rural electrification, waste management and clean cooking, we are now pushing the envelope on land use based programs such as climate-smart agriculture, forest conservation and mangrove restorations with a focus on optimizing utilization of natural resources and regenerating damaged ecosystems. Our custom designed programs are based on vulnerabilities of communities and of regions.

Our Project Focus Areas

Climate Smart Agriculture

Our agriculture programs are established to facilitate sustainable natural resource utilization and equitable access and sharing of financial resources. With our climate resilience approach our focus is on improving market linkages and access to finance for small, marginal farmers which are critical factors to stimulate livelihood and sustainability enhancing investments in agriculture.

Coastal Resilience

Our carbon programme on restoration of degraded mangroves in south Asia is both a climate change mitigation and adaptation project that aims to establish and maintain a sustainably managed mangrove ecosystem for carbon sequestration, natural disaster risk reduction, poverty reduction with sustainable livelihoods in the coastal communities.

Social Forestry

Integrating community forest management with reviving degraded land and indigenous species through afforestation, conservation & assisted natural regeneration, our social forestry programs lay strong impetus on creating carbon sinks while creating alternate livelihood opportunities for the forest communities. With a strong focus on monitoring land use changes, this program continues to restore large tracts of land in key geographies of South Asia such as the highly vulnerable and important Himalayan range.

Clean Cooking

Over the years our clean cooking program has observed many successful technologies in different geographies, enabling better living conditions for the families of the communities and, in ensuring that natural resources are not unsustainably utilized. Our projects have leveraged innovative technologies to create successful rural entrepreneur-based programs and successfully addresses a host of myriad gender issues.

Rural Energy

Our rural energy access program strengthens the development initiatives in rural and remote regions, prioritizing innovation to suit local conditions in different geographies. Our energy projects include lighting for education, solar lighting for flood affected areas, passive heating for homes in remote regions, novel approaches for access to energy in un-electrified regions and supporting innovations with a potential to reach scale.

Water Access

With a multidisciplinary approach, our water access and management programs encompass varied themes of water requirements for agriculture, adapting to new agricultural techniques to conserve water, establishing the water budget in a region to assess the utilization pattern and provide access to drinking water to vulnerable communities. All these programs incorporate gender issues and women are to a great extent, the stewards of the natural resource.

Waste Management

We along with our partners have brought together like-minded organizations under an umbrella carbon offset programme designed for start-ups in the waste management sector. The programme aims to address asymmetries of participation especially, for small-scale project partners in key community-oriented areas and sectors in multiple cities across India.

Integrate Energy Systems

The project provides access to clean and affordable energy for cooking along with a basic lighting add-on through dissemination of the integrated energy-efficient cookstoves to economically backward rural areas. The uniqueness of this hybrid system is that it is a two-way energy system developed to address the concerns of indoor air pollution and basic lighting requirements in rural areas.
