The current project aims to strengthen climate action in the state of Kerala through the facilitation of a multi-level climate governance framework. As part of the project, the WISE team is involved in mapping institutions, players, programs, schemes, etc., that guide and influence climate governance in Kerala and assess the extent to which the concerned authorities are informed and equipped institutionally and financially in meeting state and national climate goals.
Extensive field survey and primary data collection to assess, analyze and evaluate the barriers and challenges facing the current governance regime, as also drivers enabling progress are being carried out at the local level. The final outcome of the project is a more empowered and strengthened governance system (and stakeholders). The project is being carried out in collaboration with Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation and is currently ongoing.
