Reimagining Growth in India’s Climate Decade

India is faced with multifaceted vulnerabilities related to changing climate and this year, the nation reels with series of setbacks like COVID19, Cyclone Aaphan in the east coast and cyclone Nisarga at the west coast. There is a fear that long term impacts of COVID and increasing frequency of extreme events will adversely impact India’s ambitions of a GDP growth rate of ~9% by the year 2030 and its commitment to chart out a green transition. Join us to hear powerful voices from businesses and government debate the potential pathways for India to take as it steps into the climate decade.
