The dangers of climate change are now well communicated and widely understood. However, the willingness to take tough policy decisions is lacking, especially where there are concerns around how they could impact economic growth.

In this year’s Fernando lecture, one of India’s leading economists and former civil servants, Dr Montek Singh Ahluwalia will discuss the key policies that are required to make progress toward net zero in India and other developing economies, and what stands in their way.

He will address how developing economies should position themselves globally to ensure they benefit from the economic opportunities that decarbonisation brings, and whether trade policy should play a role here.
