The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is an enormous infrastructure initiative first announced by Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2013. The Chinese government has emphasized “green development” as an important feature of the BRI. To improve understanding of these topics, CGEP and the Center for International Energy and Environment Strategy Studies at Renmin University convened a conference on the Columbia University campus in New York City.
Together with NITI Aayog and the Confederation of Indian Industry, CGEP organized a day-long workshop in Delhi in late 2016 to discuss the future of natural gas in India. Authors Tim Boersma, Akos Losz, and Astha Ummat drafted the resulting brief which summarizes key takeaways, observations, and questions for future research.
