India: Climate Change, Technology, and Growth

From 2016, the Law Economics and Policy conference (LEPC) has been at the cutting edge of the issues that matter for India’s progress. Across the years, the conference has gone to different cities, and brought together thinkers and doers on the important questions. The 2024 conference will be in Pune, at the Gokhale Institute for Politics and Economics (GIPE), and focus on questions of climate change, technology and growth. India’s transition towards a net zero economy would involve rapid decarbonization of energy and adaptation strategies across sectors. The puzzles for India involve finding the combination of low carbon and high growth strategies. Technological advances are key to this journey. The frontiers of technology are required for finding low-carbon pathways. IT is India’s most important industry, and matters greatly for achieving high growth. This in turn involves the puzzles of technology policy: the problem of creating conditions through which Indian IT can flourish in its export orientation, and the possibilities for bolstering state capacity through using technology.
