India’s transformation towards clean energy for a sustainable future: understanding and analyzing the role of intangible cultural heritage

University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

Abstract: The focus has predominantly been on Southeast Asian countries like Japan and China. Meanwhile, such South Asian countries as India, Indonesia, and Pakistan, which are important from the point of view of understanding the processes of modernization, are undeservedly overlooked. Academics have maintained the necessity to study intangible cultural heritage, citing a new global context marked by a growing urban population and a changing climate as justification. UNESCO has also recognized the value of intangible cultural heritage (ICH) since 2003. Nonetheless, the link between ICH and green energy transition discourses is new. The aim of this study is to analyze how the intangible cultural heritage of Indian civilization affects the energy sector and to which conclusion it leads. Specifically, the paper is trying to expand on focusing on the clean energy sector in India. A systematic literature review (SLR) and the quantitative research method were used to answer the research questions in this work. Considerations for future approaches to ICH and the green energy sector are presented.
