Research Radio Ep 12: How Effective are Institutions for Climate Policy in India?

In this episode, we speak to Navroz K Dubash and Shibani Ghosh about the effectiveness of Indian institutions and policies to address the global environmental crises.

India is highly vulnerable to the effects of the global climate crises, and is simultaneously now the third largest contributor of greenhouse gases in the world. To address a crisis as complex and long-standing as climate change requires effective institutions. Shibani Ghosh and Navroz Dubash join us this week to share their research examining the effectiveness of Indian institutions and policies to address the global environmental crises. We’ll be focusing on an EPW article written by Navroz and Neha Joseph. Joseph could not join us for this interview. Shibani and Navroz have co-written an expanded version of the EPW article on climate policy in India and it can be freely downloaded here

Shibani Ghosh is a Fellow at the Centre for Policy Research and an Advocate-on-Record, Supreme Court of India. Her work focuses on environmental law and governance. Navroz K Dubash is also with the Centre for Policy Research where he is a professor. His work focuses on climate change, air quality, energy and water, and he has played the role of researcher, policy advisor and activist for over 25 years. 

This is the second episode of our new season featuring a refreshed format, new graphics, and an exciting line-up of scholars. Our goal remains the same: each week, we’ll take you on a behind-the-scenes tour of work published in EPW. We hope you tune in, and share your feedback!
