India’s agricultural sector is a global leader, but its GDP contribution is only 20.2%. To counter this, bringing young engineers together on a common platform holds potential. Despite being a significant producer of various crops and livestock, declining GDP share from agriculture in the last 25 years is due to resource-intensive mass production, climate-induced issues, and urban shifts. Utilizing technology is key to addressing these challenges and fostering innovation and entrepreneurship in agriculture.
Disaster management is crucial due to the wide-ranging impacts of both natural and man-made disasters, causing loss of life, property damage, and economic disruptions. While disasters are inevitable, their effects can be mitigated through hazard assessments, awareness, preparedness, and international cooperation. e-Yantra believes in nurturing young innovators to develop technology-driven solutions in areas like prediction, response, recovery, and learning from disasters, addressing the diverse challenges posed by these events.
In the face of escalating climate-induced vulnerabilities and widening disparities in urban areas, the imperative for inclusive cities has never been more pronounced. With projections indicating that half of India’s population will be urban dwellers in the next 30 years, addressing social, economic, and environmental inequalities becomes paramount. This Innovation Challenge exemplifies a pioneering effort to foster inclusive cities by harnessing innovative technology to empower individuals with disabilities, embodying a movement that places empathy and equity at the forefront of urban transformation.
