Urbanisation the Indian way - Bridging from past to future in less than a lifetime

Rapidly growing urbanisation is putting tremendous pressure on the civic infrastructure systems, and is also deteriorating the quality of the environment in the cities. There is an inadequate provision of services like water supply, sewerage and drainage, solid waste management, parks and open spaces, transport, etc. The projects under Sustainable Urban Habitat thrust area of GIZ-ASEM have attempted to address some of the environment-related problems of the cities in a structured and sustainable way. This publication captures in a comprehensive manner the major interventions made by GIZ-ASEM.


Approaches to Climate Change Adaptation in Vulnerable Communities - Facilitator's Manual

People living on the coast are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. The AdaptCap project, in the southern Indian states of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, intends to guide adaptation to the effects of climate change in small coastal communities. The chosen areas are situated along the eastern coastline of southern India. This manual is intended to be a guidance document for facilitators who will train local communities on climate change adaptation.


Climate Change – Adaptation in Industries and Industrial Areas

While many businesses are already taking action to mitigate climate change by reducing their carbon footprints, much less has been done by Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). This publication presents a snapshot of information for the benefit of MSMEs and gives useful insights to plan and implement appropriate and mutually reinforcing adaptation strategies relevant for improved infrastructure and management of industrial estates. With reference to the emerging trends in the world, it also provides a framework of adaptation for the benefit of industrialists in India.


Adapt Cap II Fact Sheets

Visibility Materials-Strengthening Adaptation Capacities and Minimizing Risk of Vulnerable Coastal Communities (CapCoast)

The CapCoast project builds knowledge and strengthens the local capacities to assess, plan and respond to climate change related threats.

The project focuses on reducing the vulnerabilities of coastal communities in two severely affected Indian states Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh by reducing their exposure and sensitivity to climate risks and increasing their adaptive capacity. The visibility materials consist of project brochure, poster and fact sheets.


Capacity building involves much more though than just conducting training courses and workshops. It implies a multi level system to develop networks, institutional systems, organisations and individuals. Without awareness, without a basis for new approaches, and without better skills for using new tools and instruments in urban planning, industrial development, environmental governance, disaster preparedness and consumer protection, development for sustainability cannot be achieved.

The Human Resource Development (HRD) platform is a webbased system with tools to support the planning, implementation, delivery and monitoring of large-scale capacity development programmes. Staff at a key training institution use the HRD platform to manage their programmes.
GIZ offers an additional institutional development service package to complement the HRD platform and foster smooth implementation. This package includes staff trainings and advisory services in the areas of quality control, workflow design and capacity building management.
