This talk will emphasize the need to ingrain scientific decision-making process in India in collaboration with the countries which have successfully implemented it. This talk will elucidate on recent developments in India to meet these challenges in general and work undertaken by Centre for Advanced Research in Building Science and Energy (CARBSE) at CEPT University in particular. How measurable means can help society to pass on the acquired knowledge to future generations to build impeccable built environment will be key focus of this talk.
