Additional Information: India is the world’s fourth-largest greenhouse gas emitter, on track to overtake the U.S. as second-largest by 2040. About 70% of Indian population (180 million households) still lives in villages cooking on biomass/wood and growing food on <2 acre farms making barely $2 a day. Along with partners, EDF has been working to chart an affordable, scalable and accessible climate smart development pathway for rural India in ways that leap-frog the business as usual for the past ten years. This talk will cover implications of our nitrous oxide and methane flux data from rice and non-rice farms, current value-chain challenges and policy interventions that EDF has been advocating in India.
