  1. 1. A Solution to Bridging the Gap Between Climate Intentions and Action Kavita Myles, INSEDA, Inforse South Asia United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, COP 21, Paris, 2015 ECO VILLAGE DEVELOPMENT
  2. 2. THE GOAL To create a climate-resilient solution for sustainable development that: - Supports the country’s development objectives and INDCs. - Includes a comprehensive approach to adaptation and mitigation. - Is inclusive and has elements of gender mainstreaming. - Has a multiplier effect. - Can be implemented immediately. - Is a low-cost solution that maximizes scarce climate finance resources. 2
  3. 3. THE SOLUTION 3 Led by Communities, Driven by Needs Beyond Just Mitigation Short Incubation of Results with Long Term Impacts A Strategy that can Adapt to the Context And Lower the Costs Along the Way
  4. 4. ECO VILLAGE DEVELOPMENT SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT - Focus on women - Intra-community equity ADAPTATION - Livelihoods support - Capacity development MITIGATION - Low-carbon, green technologies - Diversified basket of technologies BOTTOM-UP, DE-CENTRALIZED PARTICIPATORY, INCLUSIVE 360-DEGREE APPROACH 4 THE SOLUTION Low Cost Linked with Nation’s INDCs Participatory Process User Driven CIRCLE OF SUSTAINABILITY
  5. 5. 5 SOME INTERVENTIONS COMPOSTING ORGANIC GARDEN GREENHOUSE SOLAR COOKING BIOGAS TECHNOLOGY SOLAR DRYING
  6. 6. Future proofing the energy supply while building more capacity. 6 ENERGY ACCESS Decentralized, household access to clean low-carbon energy access in off- grid areas. SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT Long-term development based on environmentally sound principles. CAPACITY BUILDING Knowledge transfers, skill trainings, income generation activities, participative processes and focus on community building. ADAPTATION & MITIGATION India is already facing climate impacts, and mitigation activities alone aren’t a complete response given the low levels of per capita energy access and low-energy use. A GREEN DEVELOPMENT PATH THAT DOES NOT CREATE LOSERS A COMPLEMENTARY APPROACH TO INDCs Moving towards a higher HDI. Rural livelihood security A holistic solution
  7. 7. SCALING UP & REPLICATION To create a climate-resilient solution for sustainable development that: - Successfully replicated across a range of different geographies. - By using locally available resources, the concept can be easily diffused to other countries as well. - Using simple technologies allows local women and men to understand their use and also assist in their building. - These are need-based technologies based on locally available skills. 7 Women’s Action For Development INDIA IDEA SRI LANKA CRT/N NEPAL Grameen Shakti BANGLADESH
