Project description

The German-Indian Sustainability and Climate Change Dialogue brings together decision-makers, scholars and future environmental leaders from Germany and India. They address climate protection and environmental governance and discuss the challenges and chances for bilateral environmental cooperation between both countries. Together they seek to build a platform for exchange, linking knowledge and developing approaches to cross-national lesson-drawing as well as bilateral cooperation at the interface of politics, business and academia. In addition, the goal of the network is to provide research and higher education that is based on the necessity of practice and to create a platform for an ongoing exchange of experience and knowledge between the three fields promoted.
