Established in 2002, the U.S.-India Track II Dialogue brings together high-level participants from the think tank, NGO, academic, and business communities from both the United States and India to focus on the key challenges and opportunities that our two countries face in the energy and climate sphere. Co-chaired by Carol M. Browner, Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, and Jamshyd Godrej, Chairman and Managing Director of Godrej & Boyce Manufacturing Company Limited, the Track II Dialogue meets alternately each year in Delhi and Washington, D.C., with the next meeting in Delhi on November 10–13. The dialogue is convened by The Aspen Institute and Ananta Aspen Centre in India.
In order to help meet the climate change challenge, the United States and India must forge a strong partnership that fosters sustainable economic growth, curbs greenhouse gas emissions, and enhances resilience to the effects of climate change that are already happening.
The Center for American Progress is committed to helping make this U.S.-India energy and climate partnership a reality through a sustained series of reports, public events, and ongoing engagement through the U.S.-India Track II Dialogue on Energy and Climate Change.
