Track II Dialogue on Climate Change and Energy

Enhancing Bilateral Cooperation Between India and the U.S. (Third in-person meeting)

The Aspen Institute Energy and Environment Program in partnership with Aspen Institute India, the World Resources Institute, the Confederation of Indian Industry and the Center for American Progress have convened high-ranking civil society individuals from India and the United States in a “Track II” Dialogue. This process aims to foster trust and cooperation between the two countries through sustained, direct exchanges involving influential non-governmental actors on both sides with close ties to their respective governments. Complementing and informing formal diplomatic relations, the Track II Dialogue can delineate options for collaboration, foster communication and trust, and discuss implementation issues.

A strong strategic India-United States partnership on climate change, building on existing ties and rapidly evolving climate positions, presents a unique opportunity to deliver diplomatic and economic gains on both sides. An enhanced bilateral relationship can foster progress on energy and climate issues and could catalyze the multilateral negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

By invitation only.
