In collaboration with GBPN, AEEE aims to build administrative capacity through an action learning approach that provides the necessary MRV energy and emissions baseline for affordable housing units. The project focuses on developing a policy implementation pipeline for the uptake of Eco-Niwas Samhita 2018, supporting regional jurisdictions in policy planning, adoption, and implementation by 2020. The project will support Indian State governments to adopt appropriate sustainable building policies and energy codes that aid India’s Nationally Determined Contribution commitments to reduce the emissions intensity of its GDP by 33 to 35% by 2030 from 2005 level and exceed India’s commitments to climate action.
