The December 2020 issue of the Newsletter provides a quick recap of ICRIER’s research and policy engagements during the month of November 2020 under different thrust areas.

The T20 and G20 Summits, the raging debate around Agriculture policy change, India's decision to pull out of RCEP, the state of the Indian economy and its global interface, worries around the inexorable rise of big-tech, the pandemic and health matters among other topics are reflected in our November activities. On 30th November we did a stock take on 'G20: The Riyadh Summit, 2020' with an insightful presentation by V Srinivas. ICRIER participated in the T20 Summit in the session on 'Technology and Digitization: What Next for Labor Markets, the Future of Work and Beyond?'. If you missed these and others, you can find the recordings in the links below.

We released a critical report on ‘Achieving Nutritional Security in India: Vision 2030’ in collaboration with NABARD in November. Working Papers on 'Anti-Corruption Agenda of the G20: Bringing Order without Law' and 'The Indian Energy Divide: Dissecting inequalities in the energy transition towards LPG' continue to attract a lot of attention. The aforementioned studies can be accessed on the ICRIER website and via the links below.

We hope you take some time to view some of the recordings and also glance through other updates from November. We would love to hear back from you.
