Kavya’s work focuses on analysing and developing just and low-carbon energy transition strategies for India, while engaging with diplomatic actors, multilateral development organisations, national and sub-national governments, and civil society networks, including through E3G’s work supporting the COP26 Energy Transition Council.

Prior to joining E3G, Kavya worked as a researcher at the National Foundation for India. Her work focused on just transitions in India, looking at the phase-down of coal under India’s UNFCCC commitment to achieve net zero by 2070, and designing pathways to support the most vulnerable and marginalised communities affected. She co-authored a report entitled “Socio-economic impacts of coal transition in India”.

She also has expertise in using data-driven approaches to generate insights on developmental issues like climate resilience, urban and rural livelihoods, education, and health.

Kavya has a BA honours in Economics from the University of Delhi and a Masters in Economics, specialising in urban development, from the Symbiosis School of Economics, Pune.

Kavya enjoys listening to classical music and ghazals/poems in her free time. She is a trained Kathak dancer (an Indian classical dance form), and has a deep interest in learning about different cultures and history. She also enjoys cooking, travelling, and reading outside of work.
