Through a series of examples – across food systems, energy transition, and sustainable livelihoods – the talk explores what it takes to align development aspirations with climate action in India, the world’s largest democracy. Specifically, the talk will focus on how data, integrated analysis, and strategic outreach can help in systems transitions to shift policy narratives, shape economic sectors, further private sector action, and bring impact on the first mile.
