Undertaken By: IORA Ecological Solutions Pvt. Ltd,    Recent Publication: 2019

Shakti is facilitating the development of The Sikkim Climate Inventory and Monitoring System (SCIMS), which emanates from the state’s vision to remain carbon neutral. The SCIMS is the first step for Sikkim towards realizing the vision of being carbon neutral. The SCIMS is an automated system that annually inventorises GHG emissions by sources and sinks with the additional capability of measuring , reporting and verifying (MRV) emission reduction and sequestration. This information will help the state design and implement climate relevant actions and contribute to India’s NDC goals. Sikkim will be the first state in India to host such a system setting an important precedent for other states to follow.
