Nimli (near Alwar), Tijara, Rajasthan
"Warming of the environment has resulted in temperatures soaring during summers and exposing about 65 per cent of the Indian population to its ill effects. This is aggravated by the urban heat island effect (UHIE), which is a result of diminishing green spaces, waste heat from air-conditioners (AC), polluted air, heat absorbing building materials, constricted ventilation due to dense urban fabric, among others. India’s built-up area will increase by five times by 2030, and it will be dominated by residential use. Therefore, housing sector plays an instrumental role in shaping India’s future built stock to be resilient to the effects of climate change such as heat stress in urban areas, soaring energy budget due to rising demand for cooling, flooding due to extreme rainfall and diminishing green spaces among many others. As India is building about 12 million units in urban areas as part of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, there is a strong need to mainstream climate-appropriate development practices."

Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute (AAETI) offers this course to familiarize participants with the ambit of current government policies and schemes, inclusive spatial planning, innovative and cost-effective environmental services, and the role building geometry and material choice plays in planning and designing climate appropriate housing.
SOME HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS PROGRAMME WILL BE:
AAETI is an ECBC compliant sustainable, state of the art campus. Participant interaction with the campus features will enable them to understand the working of all 5 natural elements coming together and acting as a learning tool for good building design practices. The campus has utilized passive techniques and decentralized systems (waste water, building waste, renewables, water sensitive design, etc.) which the participants will be made familiar with.
Note: This course involves various modelling exercises. Participants must bring a laptop.
