Jonathan Balls India and the United Kingdom collaborating on the
Climate, Energy and Biodiversity
Both India and the UK have elevated climate, energy, and biodiversity as key focus areas for international development cooperation, driven by the increasingly urgent challenges of climate change, energy transitions, and biodiversity loss around the world. The IUKDPF supports multiple research projects across these topics, including on India’s leadership on solar internationally through the International Solar Alliance, on Indian energy investments in Africa, and on the future of low-carbon cooling technologies. We are further committed to fostering conversations between India and the UK on the challenges and opportunities in these areas, and facilitating new bilateral and trilateral collaborations.
