About this blog

This blog is focussed on connecting new and innovation technologies, that solve global problems, societal challenges and address the UNSDGs, to markets to accelerate tech access and deployment globally.

Global Business Inroads(GBI ) has been facilitating tech access and deployment for energy, environment, climate change, health, agritech/biotech areas for over a decade and we are now keen to scale our actions. One of the ways is to educate tech adopters/markets about technologies and tech innovators about markets/ tech deployment ecosystem. There is no lack of technologies and markets/needs, but the issue lies in between – how do we get the technologies to the markets, adapt and develop the appropriate business models, scale demand to reduce costs, localise and so on and so forth. Through our solidified commitment for since its inception in (2009), GBI has assisted over 200+ firms in various capacities including viability assessments for market access, partnership analysis, technology uptake facilitation and market analysis.

While we have focussed on action, we now plan to add education and capacity building via this blog and online platform Global Technology Interface . Let’s share and learn about what’s out there, what can we use, how can we drive change. Watch out for the technologies and companies we feature, the markets and how they are growing, challenges and opportunities for technology deployment. The upcoming blog of this series will give the readers an insight on the prevailing solid waste management scenario in India and subsequent Indian market opportunities

Access to safe and potable drinking water has been a serious problem for India, chiefly in rural areas where lack of usable water has resulted in sanitation and health complications and issues. As per the government records in 1980 only 1% of rural India had access to safe and potable water. By 2013 the statistics showed that accessibility improved to 30%, but till date the majority of rural India still continues to live without proper access to safe drinking water. A recent report by...
India is one of most water-stressed countries in the world and is on the trajectory of becoming water scarce in the coming years. As per the latest Niti Aayog study, the Per capita water availability is expected to reach 1,465 cubic metres by 2025 from 1,544 m3 in 2011. It is forecasted that if appropriate measures and combats are not taken, the country may have to confront a series of associated problems, ranging from health issues due to poor sanitation and conflicts over water ac...
Rapid, and unplanned urbanisation has led to growth of stressed and poor urban infrastructure with lack of basic service delivery in India. Whilst this pattern of urbanisation has brought many challenges, wastewater, or sewage management remained as one of the most critical yet neglected areas. Urban India’s wastewater management systems present a grim picture with severe infrastructure gaps along the value chain with overburdened and financially stressed municipalities and corpora...
Today we are seeing a wave of conversational AI sweeping across several sectors, and every domain is looking to add AI-based solutions to automate routine transactions and processes.

In similar ways Artificial intelligence (AI) is making its mark on t...
While I start this new year feeling refreshed after celebrations with family and friends, my thoughts naturally flow to how Health, Sustainability and Digital solutions have taken over the global rhetoric.

As per the latest reports, over 75% of the waste that is generated in India is recyclable but what we recycle is just 30%. It’s actually high time that waste management is taken up seriously and immediately in the country otherwise if this issue is ignored any further then in the coming years we will need a landfill site which will be equivalent to the size of the metro cities of India. As per the latest reports of the Central Pollution Control Board, less than 15% of the municipal soli...
In India, initially, there has been very minuscule awareness about solid waste management and its hierarchy. However, in the last few years, the situation of solid waste management has been changing. Still, we have a long way to implement effective solid waste management practices. Lack of waste segregation is the biggest hindrance to implementing solid waste management. Though, the plastic and paper recycling sector are budding and proliferating due to the huge market demand for these commod...
The waste management scenario in India as discussed in the previous blogs in the waste management series has highlighted the rate at which the waste is generated in India by different stakeholders. The more than 1.3 billion people in India generate the highest amount of waste in the world, surprisingly more that’s more than China which is the most populous country on this globe and it’s expected to increase substantially by 2050 unless urgent measures are not taken by differe...
