India’s G20 year is raising the profile of sustainable finance in both policy and market practice. The central bank is increasing its focus on climate risks and the first sovereign green bond has been issued. But a significant investment gap still remains if India is to meet its climate and sustainable development goals through a just transition. In this in-person event, Dr Suranjali Tandon will provide the latest insights on financing practices, regulatory reform and policy focus in India to deliver an inclusive and sustainable development.
