The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote green technologies, advance cutting-edge policies, and build capacity to meet humanity's environmental challenges.

According to the announcement, the UNEP's collaboration with TERI aims to foster the common goal of science-based solutions to environmental challenges and will undertake multiple initiatives under the MoU to meet this vision.

These initiatives include searching for and providing the most recent, up-to-date, and relevant findings and research related to environmental innovation; supporting frontier assessments of innovations, including cutting-edge technologies and nature-based solutions; and developing data infrastructure and standards for environmental information management, collection, dissemination, and analytics to provide insights into decision-making processes.

The agreement also calls for joint assessments, scanning processes for the most appropriate and environmentally friendly technologies, and determining the necessary enabling conditions (including governance) for scalability at the local, national, and global levels.

TERI is a policy research institute dedicated to developing innovative solutions in the fields of energy, the environment, and sustainable development. UNEP's mandate is to provide timely, scientifically credible, and policy-relevant environmental assessments for decision-making in order to move the 2030 Agenda forward.

Last year, a draught study presented at the 'Roundtable Dialogue on Responsible Consumption and Production,' organized by UNEP, SWITCH-Asia, and TERI, recommended: "strengthening data monitoring and reporting to showcase India's progress toward sustainable consumption and production."
