d) Ongoing Research Projects
  • Designing and Strategizing Implementation of Sustainable Livelihood Interventions in Dhemaji and Lakhimpur Districts of Assam [Principal Investigator] (Budget: INR 4,25,00,000.00)

    This project is a collaborative action research with active participation of NHPC Limited, partner organizations, district administration, and communities. The project implements multiple sector based climate resilient livelihoods by creating collective enterprises owned by the communities. Three producers companies one each in piggery, sericulture and handloom sectors are promoted under this assignment which are engaged in the complete value chains.

    Decarbonisation of energy supply, community building and creating environmental and socioeconomic benefits [Principal Investigator, Indian part]

    This is a collaborative project between 12 European agencies, India and China. In this project we define the energy islands as areas (e.g. isolated villages, small cities, urban districts, rural areas) either connected to the grid, or with a significant degree of self-supply.
