  Field Notes
TERI Conducts Carbon Stock Assessment Fieldwork in Mehsana, Gujarat
TERI, in collaboration with the Department of Forests, Gujarat, conducted the carbon stock assessment for 31 sample plots in the Mehsana district to calculate the total CO2 equivalent as per the methodology given in IPCC GPG and FSI. The objective was to generate carbon credits, incentives from which will be distributed amongst the farmers of Gujarat serving as an additional income for them.

Climate Change
Democratising knowledge and making it accessible by dejargonising the climate change discourse is the first step towards spearheading climate action. TERI’s explainer on climate change aims to simplify the know-how on climate change for stakeholders.

Readiness and Capacity Needs Assessment for Electric Vehicle Adoption in Indian Cities
Indian cities have tremendous potential to accelerate EV adoption through innovation and efficient decentralized mechanisms. However, the impact of city-level actions has been relatively under-explored. A study from TERI analysed the current status and ranked the readiness of Indian cities for EV planning and adoption, and identified the capacities and roadblocks for future EV planning and deployment.
