India’s Arctic Policy: Building a Partnership for Sustainable Development

Speaker: Captain (IN) Anurag Bisen, Research Fellow, Manohar Parikkar-Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses

India’s Arctic Policy, released by the Government of India on 17 March 2022, fulfils a longstanding need for a clear articulation on a rapidly transforming Arctic, which is warming three times faster than the rest of the world. This is leading to major transformation of global shipping routes and increased availability of mineral and hydrocarbon resources, both of which are likely to have an immense impact on the geo-political and resources landscape of the world, including India, in the coming years. The talk will examine the need for an Arctic Policy for India; look into the gaps in India’s present engagement in the Arctic; and analyse the features of the recently released policy.
