Global Energy Challenge Perspectives from Indian Lawmakers

The Global Energy Challenge Perspectives from Indian Lawmakers

November 1, 2017 | 12:30 PM
Saieh Hall, Room 021

India has made important progress in confronting climate change in recent years, with their signing of the Paris Agreement, commitments to reduce carbon emissions and significant investments in clean energy. What is driving this progress? How does the Indian government balance the need to expand access to energy while implementing policies to address air pollution and climate risks? And, how does a shifting policy landscape in the United States impact the policy agenda and international cooperation in India? 
Join EPIC as we host two Indian Members of Parliament for a conversation on energy and climate policy in India, moderated by EPIC Director Michael Greenstone and EPIC-India Director Anant Sudarshan.
