Panel Discussion as a part of the India Week


After the US backed out of the Paris Agreement, the challenge of climate change has reached a new level. Tropical or subtropical regions like India are among the first to suffer from the consequences. Yet, through population-growth and digitalization, the country’s energy-demand is increasing by the hour. Most of the energy-supply comes from fossil fuels and is needed, to establish a stable energy-network. With regards to international climate agreements however, the current Indian government has made commitments towards renewable energy, too.

The Indo-German Media Network recently organised a panel discussion addressing this issue. The event was organised as a part of the India Week in Hamburg.During the discussion, the future of energy- and climate-politics in India were discussed. Amongst other aspects that were discussed, the most important were : What needs to be done to fulfill international and national climate-goals? Are the current strategies leading the right way and if not – what could be done better? How can both allies work on this together?

Panelists for this discussion were 
- Chandra Bhushan, Director General of Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), New Delhi
- Dr. Joachim Betz, South Asia Expert, GIGA Institute, Hamburg
- Dr. Rajnish Tiwari, Senior Research Fellow and Program Director at the Institute for Management of Technologies and Innovation, TU Hamburg
- Julia Wadhawan (Freelance Journalist) as Moderator
