How can India Lead a Sustainable Cooling Transition?

13 May 2022   |   1000–1600 IST

Hon'ble Shri Bhupender Yadav, Union Minister, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC), Government of India will deliver the inaugural address at the session.

As the demand for cooling surges in India, there is an immense opportunity for jobs, growth and sustainability that this sector can offer. A policy framework has already been set in motion signalling the need to expand access to sustainable cooling technologies across our population.

This National Dialogue is a platform to convene on several key dimensions of the cooling transition. First, a high-level panel will reflect on India’s policy framework for climate-friendly cooling strategies to stay the course as we move forward. Second, to leverage the growth and jobs opportunity, a special panel will discuss how the sector can be made more competitive, self-reliant and export-ready. Third, a roundtable will focus on how successful interfaces between government, industry and academia can be designed to fulfil the R&D and technology needs of the sector.
