Ingrid Srinath at the World Economic Forum, Davos, Switzerland

Ingrid Srinath, Secretary General, CIVICUS Speaking during the session 'Insights on India' Ingrid shared her concerns about the government's inability to keep its promises. "Despite the government's pledges to the contrary, growth in India had not been inclusive.

Child malnutrition has barely improved over the past two decades and caste politics still excluded millions of people from real opportunity.
