The Climate Initiative produces research, informs public opinion and generates debate on climate policy at international, national and sub-national levels. One line of research focuses on the linkages between development and climate policy. Another examines legal issues in the global climate negotiations. Our goal is to enhance policy outcomes through informed research and policy dialogue on climate change within India and internationally.
In 2014, the Climate Initiative at the Centre for Policy Research was ranked highest in India, highest among developing country think tanks, and 14th globally by the International Centre for Climate Governance (ICCG) in its standardised global climate think tank rankings.
