United States Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry will travel to India from September 12-14 to engage with international counterparts on efforts to address the climate crisis.

During his visit, the United States and India will launch the Climate Action and Finance Mobilization Dialogue (CAFMD), one of the two main tracks of the U.S.-India Agenda 2030 Partnership that US President Joe Biden and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced at the Leaders Summit on Climate in April 2021.
