Local Governance

In this series of #WebPolicyTalk, we will conduct 30-minute Q and A sessions with thematic experts, policymakers, and practitioners to learn about their work and their relevance in addressing local governance challenges.

The #WebPolicyTalk will be conducted via a Zoom webinar and streamed live on Facebook. The event video would be available on the IMPRI YouTube Channel, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify, and Google Podcasts thereafter.

The audience would be comprised mostly of policymakers, practitioners, researchers, faculty, and university and college students across India and other countries.

The outcome of the deliberations would be disseminated through various social media platforms and media outlets and would contribute to the preparation of a policy brief that will help in the future course of actions for policymakers, practitioners, researchers, and civil society organizations.
