Indian-European Multi-Level Climate Governance Research Network

The Indian-European Multi-level Climate Governance Research Network (IECGN) is a joint effort of leading Indian and European academic institutions in the research of climate policy.

Our partners are the Environmental Policy Research Center, Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin; Faculty of Policy and Planning, TERI University, New Delhi; Institute for Environmental Studies, VU University Amsterdam; Global Change Programme, Jadavpur University, Kolkata and Department of Ecology and Environmental Science, Pondicherry University.

Our research focuses on the challenges and opportunities in strengthening response to climate change on multiple levels of governance in India and the EU. We wish to provide for a better understanding of climate action emerging from the bottom-up at lower levels of governance such as federal states, cities and municipalities, and the interplay and consistency with climate policy frameworks coming from the national and supranational level.
