The government of China is proposing to move carbon intensive industries and coal-fired power generation out of the Eastern provinces and into the less-developed, environmentally sensitive Western provinces. This project seeks to create and expand tools for state planners, academics, and NGOs to quantify the water risks and trade-offs that come with developing Western China’s massive coal reserves. Often the Chinese government will approve coal projects without adequate information on the supply of water needed for the project. Through this grant, the World Resources Institute will also promote the concept of tying new coal projects in water-stressed areas to comprehensive environmental impact reviews.

for electric mobility initiative in India
World Resources Institute (WRI) is actively engaged in various geographies to produce relevant e-mobility research and provide deep technical assistance that supports stakeholders in delivering results. WRI’s electric mobility initiative in India has been working extensively with the Indian government and various state governments on developing the EV ecosystem and contributing to India’s strengthened commitment to the e-mobility transition. This grant will allow WRI to continue to support this transition and work closely at the subnational level with state governments to support the planning and implementation of EV initiatives, provide necessary technical assistance and enable capacity development within government departments, and facilitate collaborations between public and private sector stakeholders.
