The Energy Resources Institute (TERI) has been ranked among
the top think-tanks by the International Center for Climate Governance (ICCG). TERI, a
leading think tank dedicated to conducting research for sustainable development of India
and the Global South, was ranked second in the Climate Think Tank Ranking under the
category “2016 Top Climate Think Tanks in the Rest of the World- Absolute Global
Rankings”. The results of the rankings were announced by ICCG at the 23rd Annual
Conference of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists
(EAERE) in Athens, Greece.
The fifth edition of the ICCG Climate Think Tank List assessed 244 think tanks, not strictly
affiliated or integrated with Universities specialized in the research fields of climate change
and climate policy, which figured in the ICCG Think Tank Map Observatory.
Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General, TERI, said, “Today, climate change is a real threat, and
its manifestations are becoming apparent. In today’s globally interconnected society, it is
more important than ever to build a policy framework that can evolve and adapt rapidly to
this growing threat. This system would need to be guided by extensive research, climate
modeling capabilities and assessments of economically viable and technologically feasible
solutions. It is in this context that the ICCG ranking helps highlight the scale and magnitude
of work done by the think tanks working in the field of climate change. It is a matter of great
pride for us at TERI to be recognized among the top global climate think tanks. This
encourages and motivates us to continue to work with the global community towards
building a greener tomorrow.”
Since its establishment in 1974, TERI has made its mark as a research institute, whose
policy and technology solutions transformed people's lives and the environment. The scope
of the organization’s activities includes climate change, energy efficiency, renewable energy,
biotechnology, and social transformation.
The ICCG think tank’s evaluation is based on a solid quantitative methodology and solid
analytical data. Think tanks were assessed and classified based on their performances in a
set of 15 indicators, structured in three main pillars: Activities, Publications and
Dissemination. It follows two rankings – the Standardized Ranking measures the think
tanks’ efficiency in per capita/researcher terms, by taking into account the number of
researchers in each institution; while the Absolute Ranking measures the think tanks’
performances regardless of their efficiency and hence size.
