GREEN-WIN National Workshop on Energy Poverty Alleviation and Resilient Livelihoods
The National Workshop on Energy Poverty Alleviation and Resilient Livelihoods will take place from 6-9 April 2016 at the Development Alternatives headquarters in New Delhi, India. This workshop is the first activity in India under the EU-funded GREEN-WIN project, which aims at researching and applying a solution-oriented approach targeted to a better understanding the links between climate action and sustainability. This national workshop will contribute to overcoming economic, financial and institutional barriers to sustainable climate action at local and international levels through identifying win-win strategies, green business models and enabling environments, in support of the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals via green entrepreneurship.
This workshop is the result of collaboration between the Society for Technology and Action for Rural Advancement (TARA), a not-for-profit of the Development Alternatives Group and the EU-funded GREEN-WIN project, via the Autonomous University of Barcelona. It is oriented to support collaboration, gain an improved understanding and support further learning networks on win-win solutions and new forms of entrepreneurship linking climate change, while exploring the most conducive and enabling institutional conditions to support sustainable development and green economy. Participants from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors - both from within and outside the energy and capacity building community - will engage in highly interactive discussions and debates. Moreover, the workshop will also involve field visits to Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.
