This event will be an interactive Zoom discussion on the issue of sustainability in Indian states presented by Neelima Jain of the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Following the initial brief presentation, audience members are invited to present questions for discussion.
India as a nation has made international sustainability commitments. To reach these goals, individual Indian states must take steps toward climate change. Each state is progressing at a variable rate to reach national goals. What is holding some states back from making progress in moving forward with sustainability efforts? Will foreign policy climate change commitments benefit individual states?
