Scaling clean power in India could create jobs, improve air quality and more than pay for itself - but it will require money and lots of it. Will the international community provide the upfront financing that India needs? What support do India’s banks need to finance green at scale? And what does a just transition look like for 1.3 billion Indians?
India has made bold pledges to end poverty and to reach net-zero emissions, but achieving both these big commitments is a costly proposition. This session will identify what is needed in addition to India's already significant domestic investment in renewables, to meet the economic and environmental end goals.
This event is part of the 2022 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting Affiliate Programme.
