Climate & Biodiversity | Aug 19, 2008

This is a talk Rohini gave at the Seventh Anniversary of Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Environment and Development, Bangalore on 19th August, 2008.

And to reach out, best as I can, to the increasing numbers of the seriously wealthy in India, so that they will reach deep into their pockets to make it ever more possible to unravel the fine web of threads that bind us all.”

Bengaluru is not inclusive: Rohini Nilekani
