A PROCESS TO MASS HOUSING DEVELOPMENT FOCUSING ON CLIMATE RESPONSE, RESOURCE EFFICIENCY AND ADAPTIVE COMFORT
India has estimated its urban housing shortage at 18.78 million units, which is projected to reach 48 million by 2022 according to a KPMG report. This shortage is especially looming for the urban poor, while the lower income group forms 96 per cent of this shortage. Mitigation to this shortage is put in place by the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana – Housing for All mission by 2022. About 200,000 hectares of land will be needed to provide the housing deficit until 2022, which translates to addition of 244 million tonnes of carbon emissions. Requirement for other resources and services such as water, energy, building materials, solid waste management, etc. will increase exponentially as well. For instance, the annual electricity use per household is projected to increase from 650 KWh in 2012 to 2750 kWh by 2050, according to a study.
It is imperative to ensure housing that is resource-efficient, climate-responsive, resilient, safe, healthy, comfortable and most importantly affordable to the rapidly growing urban masses, especially urban poor. Sustainable Development Goal No. 11 sets the target and provide indicators for cities to ensure adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services and upgradation of slums. CSE has extensive advocacy around sustainable development practices and is working with states to ensure mass housing stock does not underperform vis-a-vis the SDG targets.
The course will be offered at CSE’s Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute (AAETI). It is an environmentally sustainable and ECBC compliant state-of-the-art facility. The campus has been selected by Global Environmental Facility,
Bureau of Energy Efficiency and UNDP India as one of the 24 Model Energy Efficient Buildings of the country which will be monitored for their energy performance. AAETI is equipped with cost-effective and sustainable technologies such as passive design in buildings, decentralized waste-water treatment system (Nature-Based Solutions), rainwater harvesting, solid waste management, renewable energy, efficient HVAC system, etc. Participants will get to experience these technologies and learn based on live demonstration during their stay.
