The Indo-German Expert Group is an interdisciplinary working group of renowned experts from leading research institutions / political think tanks in India and Germany. It was set up in 2013 to enhance collaborative learning, contribute to informed decision-making in both countries and feed into the international debate on a green and inclusive economy. The group is supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and facilitated by the GIZ Environmental Policy Programme in Berlin and the Indo-German Environment Partnership in Delhi.

The Indo-German Expert Group has met four times since its formation. Each meeting was dedicated to a specific key topic and was jointly prepared in tandem by an Indian and a German institution. The experts also produced a policy paper after each meeting, sharing the perspective of both countries on the respective issue. The meetings of the group were organized back-to-back with public events on related subjects to foster knowledge exchange.

The key topics discussed so far are as follows:

• Pathways towards a Green and Inclusive Transformation (November 2013),

• Decoupling Economic Growth from Resource Consumption (February 2014),

• Sustainable Lifestyles (November 2014),

• Inclusive Sustainable Cities (April 2015).
