A fireside chat with H.E. Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas and Minister of Steel, Republic of India

Join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center and South Asia Center on Wednesday, April 21, from 8:00-8:30a.m. EDT for a conversation India’s climate ambitions, successes, and agenda, with H.E. Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas and Minister of Steel.

This event will be the fourth in the Atlantic Council “Raising Ambitions” events series, which focuses on the higher climate ambitions that the Biden-Harris administration hopes to realize at home and abroad. It will evaluate key technologies critical to helping reach these goals, emphasize sectoral approaches to decarbonization, and highlight that countries are increasing their commitments to climate action. The aim is to build momentum in advance of the United States’ Leaders’ Climate Summit in April and encourage increased ambition from public and private sector actors.
