Repository of Local Climate Solutions – A Precursor to Regional Collaboration and Advocacy

The Eco Village Development (EVD) is seen as an alternate pathway towards sustainable development of villages as a unit, and has been established through the demonstration villages set up in diverse socioeconomic, geographic and climatic conditions across Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and India.  EVD is a basket of local solutions on renewable energy, accompanied with community mobilization, involvement of women and children and appropriate training and capacity building bringing lasting changes in communities. EVD promotes climate action by reducing GHG emission and building adaptive capacity of vulnerable communities.The EVD approach has been useful to communities where the local solutions were implemented resulting in augmented capacity of communities and improved livelihood.
