7th G-STIC CONFERENCE IN INDIA

22 - 23 OCTOBER 2024 

HARMONISING TECHNOLOGY, POLICY AND BUSINESS PATHWAYS FOR SUSTAINABLE FUTURE AND COEXISTENCE 

Climate change, environmental degradation, resource scarcity, poverty, and health risks are posing significant challenges for global economies. These issues complicate the post-COVID recovery and are exacerbated by recent regional conflicts and wars. Amidst these challenges, urgent action is needed to limit greenhouse gas emissions across all sectors within this decade to contain global warming at 1.5°C or 2°C and prevent escalating losses and damages.

Tackling these issues requires a collective global commitment based on trust and solidarity. Affordable technological solutions are crucial for ensuring equitable access to natural resources, safeguarding the environment and accelerating the 2030 agenda. Governments and businesses need to commit to clear policies and invest in innovative technologies that enable widespread access and cost-effective scalability, ultimately contributing to a net-zero future.

The 7th G-STIC Conference in Delhi is organised by our co-host TERI and will bring together various experts and stakeholders from around the world to harmonise technological, policy, and business solutions in response to global climate challenges, development needs, and regional conflicts. Collaborative partnerships, knowledge exchange, and innovative approaches for climate action and the sustainable development goals will be explored.
