A GLIMPSE INTO THE TOOLKIT
IMPACTS AND FEEDBACK After a workshop in Haryana with around 162 households, 60% of the households replaced incandescent bulbs with CFL bulbs A process towards minimising Indias emissions Easy to adopt and verifiable. Clarity, brevity and easy to understand Communities want presentations and trainings for their staff so as to spread these messages

Partners - Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grant Program (SGP), United Nation Development Program (UNDP), Center for Environment Education (CEE). Project Highlights: It proposes to create a carbon calculator with a difference – CoolCalculator
An idea of carbon emission reduction for every climate friendly action they take. Will be made available on the internet Will be installed in 1200 schools and colleges across 12 major cities of India. Documentation and verification of the responsible actions of climate friendly activities by youth Regular updation, verification and validation of the data will be done with every school and college

200,000,000 kg of CO 2 less per year If every house in Delhi would just change 1 bulb to a CFL
Switch off unnecessary lights and fans Reduce annual CO 2 emissions by 28 kg Reduce annual electricity bills by ` 134 per bulb and fan kept on for just an extra hour each day
If you can get 1000 people to do that, thats kg of CO2 less per year Switch off unnecessary lights and fans
