Telangana: Stakeholder Consultations Meeting for Rapid Climate Risk Analysis

21 December, 2015 - 31January 2016; Pashamylaram,Jeedimetla, Rampur, Cherlapally, Madikonda and Hitech City Madhapur Software Units Layout. Date: December 21st, 2015 and January 31st, 2016

Stakeholder consultations meeting were conducted with Industrialists, IALAs, APIIC Zonal Officers and INTEGRATION team between 20th January and 1st February, 2016. In this regard, CCA Project Team along with ASCI visited the selected IPS for “Capacity Needs Assessment” of the Stakeholders and CoreCarbanX visited the IPs for RCRA.

The Rapid Climate Risk Assessment study based on 

  • Identify relevant climatic hazards in the area.
  • Determine temporal and spatial exposure of the IPs.
  • Determine susceptibility and fragility of the IPs.
  • Combine exposure and susceptibility to expected impact.
  • Determine resilience of the IP.
  • Combine impact and resilience to derive vulnerability of the IP.
  • Risk Analysis.

Case 1: IP Pashamylaram

IP Pashamylaram is located in Patancheru industrial zone in Medak district of Telangana The Industrial association described that a land has been identified within the IP for installation of effluent treatment plant (ETP).The overall greenery in the IP is less and should be increased. IP has a small dispensary and an ambulance to manage medical situations. However, single entry and exit point could be a hazard incase of medical situations

 Case 2: IP Jeedimetla

IP Jeedimetla was established more than 40 years ago. It is located in the Rangareddy district of Telangana. The groundwater in and around IP Jeedimetla has been polluted due to industrial growth and is not suitable for any use. This leaves the industries in IP with only two options for obtaining water; one is supply from municipality (mainly through tankers) and other being private tankers. At the same time, IP Jeedimetla is home to many small and big companies which need high quality process water like bulk drug, pharma, chemicals and pesticide industry. The water crisis accompanied by climatic changes impacts increases the concerns related to water.

During stakeholder consultation it was established that IP Jeedimetla is the only IP which has a common effluent treatment plant for the IP. It is operated by an independent entity called Jeedimetla Effluent Treatment Limited (JETL). There a need to review the adequacy of the ETP’s ability to handle and treat all the wastewater generated from the IP.

 

Case 3: IP Hi-tech city Madhapur and Software Unit Layout, Madhapur

This IP does not have any process water requirement. The energy consumption is also limited to office spaces. HVAC cooling system, computers and laptops are the major consumers of power in this IP. From the stakeholder consultations it was found that the IP has a better financial capability to address climate change.The road and building infrastructure of this park was better maintained as compared to other parks.

The storm water drainage systems are in place and development of a common sewerage treatment plan is under process.

 Along with GIZ, TSIIC has initiated a five point program in the IPs in Cyberabad zone. Five points of the program are: Retrofitting of existing office/factory building to green buildings and barrier free work spaces.

Solid waste management and e-waste management. Promotion of “cycle to work”, Greening of industrial parks,Storm water management and rain water harvesting.

 Case 4:  IP Rampur and IP Madikonda

IP Rampur and IP Madikonda are similar in size (about 180 acres each), with similar type of industries and are located nearby. Thus, the stakeholder consultation for both these industrial parks was conducted through a joint meeting and is considered as one consultation meeting in the Rapid Climate risk analysis. Both the IPs have granite sheet cutting, polishing, rice mills and other processing industry.

Stakeholders have cited scarcity of water as one of the major concerns in these industrial parks. The ground water is depleting fast, forcing the industries to rely on private water tankers to meet their water demand. Unlike, other industrial zones, municipal water supply is unavailable at these parks. Industries and TSIIC observe the need to have a good storm water management system in place to partially meet the need for water

Case 5: IP Cherlapally

 IP Cherlapally like IP Jeedimetla and IP Pashamylaram, the industries and association pointed out that under Harita Haram, flagship project of government of Telangana, large plantations were undertaken at the park. The stakeholder also identified issues of ground water pollution at some places.

The stakeholder consultations were taken up for each of the identified IP’s and Rapid climate risk analysis questionnaires developed for the group stakeholder consultation process was applied to the IPs Telangana.

The Risk Assessment Methodology was the guiding document throughout the Rapid Climate risk analysis exercise and enabled the collection of data. Information collected from all the sources was synthesized to understand the exposure of IP, its vulnerability and hence, the risk related to climate change.

The information received from the consultation was presented to the working committee for any further comments and clarifications. The vulnerability of IPs was established through a vulnerability matrix. The views of external experts from TSIIC and other institutions were gathered through steering committee meeting.
