CONACYT y TERI collaborate in sustainable development projects
Mexico and India will exchange knowledge to improve co-investment on environment
Mexico’s technology council and India’s top institute for energy studies agreed on Tuesday to collaborate on sustainable development projects at an event during the COP16/CMP6 conference at the Climate Change Village in Cancun.
The Mexico City-based National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT in Spanish), which is formed by 27 institutes, signed a memorandum of understanding with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) to exchange research on natural resource conversation and environmental improvement.
Rajendra K. Pachauri, TERI director and chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), said that a joint center, to be tentatively opened in Mexico next year, should develop new technologies and policies to mitigate and adapt to the effects of global warming and include the perspectives of local cultures and traditions.
Miguel Equihua Zamora, former director and now a reseacher of Mexico’s Institute of Ecology and CONACyT (integrated by 27 institutions with offices in Mexico City) said that universities and technology institutes from both countries would participate in “the search for an understanding of what is necessary to provide humanity with sustainable development.”
“This combination of knowledge generation, a new understanding of humans and the relationship that we have with the environment, as well as new ways to utilize crucial natural resources, is what we’re going to be looking at through this partnership.”
