>> Speakers Profile

The India Climate Policy and Business Conclave is India's flagship event in the climate change domain, organised by the FICCI, in partnership with the Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEFCC), Government of India, The World Bank Group , The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). The Conclave is supported by GIZ.

The Conclave was launched by FICCI in November 2007 as the "India Carbon Market Conclave". The Conclave brought global carbon credit buyers, investors and financiers in contact with a large cross-section of Indian project developers. It also facilitated the entry of new and prospective CDM project proponents through the pre-conference workshops. The Conclave was rechristened as "India Climate Policy and Business Conclave" in 2013 to reflect on domestic and international climate policy, and business perspectives and initiatives on climate mitigation and adaptation.  In the last nine years, the Conclave has garnered global participation from over 30 countries and attracted stakeholders from the entire spectrum of climate change and carbon market.

With the UNFCCC 22nd Conference of Parties (COP 22) in Marrakesh laying the foundations for implementation of the Paris Climate change Agreement, this year’s Conclave will be the first large platform offering private sector and public stakeholders an opportunity to deliberate on climate policy and business priorities required for accelerated climate action in the period before 2020 and in the new post-2020 climate regime.
