Apraava Energy understands and acknowledges the dangers posed by climate change and has crafted programs for communities to address this issue. These initiatives include soil and water conservation, stop crop residue burning, biodiversity conservation, tree plantation and sustainable energy interventions.
CII Foundation and Apraava Energy are working closely on the ground to address the issues of air pollution with the farmers to be aware, train, and adopt sustainable farm practices. This is a multi-stakeholder project by engaging each group of society, government agencies, and technical partners together.
Apraava Energy works closely on the ground to address the issues of air pollution by implementing Crop Residue Management programme in a few districts of Haryana. The programme spreads awareness on ‘zero stubble burning approach’ by working closely with farmers’ clubs and aiming to bring about behavioural changes and motivates them to adopt technological tools.
Key interventions included provision of technological tools bank, behavior change training and exploring locally relevant ex-situ options for straw management.
Apraava Energy addresses the issue of water scarcity and creation of water harvesting structures and related activities in villages of Ahmednagar and Beed districts in the state of Maharashtra. The programme has led to improvement in water security and livelihood, creation of water storing capacity and generation of local employment.
