Carbon Neutral Meenangadi: Assessment & Recomendations

The purpose of this project is to propose sector-wise adaptation and mitigation strategies todevelop Meenangadi Panchayat of Wayanad district in Kerala as a ‘Carbon Neutral Panchayat’by carrying out a carbon emission and sequestration analysis in the sectors of Transportation,Energy, Waste, Livestock and AFOLU (Agriculture, Forests and Other Land Use). The conceptof ‘Carbon Neutral Community’ puts forth the notions of zero carbon development and food- energy self-sufficiency at local government level.

The estimate shows that there was excess of carbon emissions (Surplus of total emissions over total sequestrationin terms CO2Eq) of 11,412.57 tonnes of CO2Eq in 2016-17.
