South Asia Low Carbon Platform (SALCP) launched

Our partners from Sussex University recently launched the South Asia Low Carbon Platform (SALCP). SALCP is a new knowledge-sharing platform for low carbon energy and low carbon development for India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. The aim of SALCP is to disseminate and share information on low carbon energy systems and low carbon development strategies that reduce poverty and tackle climate change in these countries. A specific focus of the platform is on South Asian communities and their ways of achieving low carbon development.

The platform provides the following services:

  • Free download of resources on renewable energy, other low carbon energy and low carbon development
  • Free upload of own resources by platform users
  • Blogs, chat rooms and a discussion forum to share experience and resources
  • Regular news on low carbon energy and low carbon development

The platform is open to practitioners, researchers, policy-makers, businesses and everyone who is interested in energy and low carbon development in South Asia and can be found within the Eldis Community at http://community.eldis.org/southasia. You can access the full content of the platform after registering as a member. Members are encouraged to contribute to the platform by posting blog items, participating in discussions and uploading their own publications.
