Dear SBSE colleagues,

An important BRI SPECIAL ISSUE is now published online:

Energy and climate change solutions: India's building stock
Guest edited by Radhika Khosla and Kathryn (Katy) B. Janda

Given the imperative to limit global warming to 1.5 C, this special issue examines the potential that India and similar countries hold for radical reductions in energy demand and GHGs in the building sector.  An enormous opportunity exists in India over the next 15-20 years as its building stock will grow at an unprecedented rate.  Ensuring this is done to minimise the energy demand is crucial.
