India Governance Forum in its twentieth year is the oldest Governance Leadership Summit. Its recommendations have had a profound policy impact across the center and state governments. It is one of the few conferences where the focus is on field research-based knowledge-rich arguments that bring felt needs to the discussion table. The SKOCH Organization firmly believes Governance is what is received and not what was the intended delivery and ongoing field research and conversations across thousands of projects in a year give a deep insight into what is working and how it can work even better.
With these awards, SKOCH Organization brings together an ecosystem of academics, industry, economists, policy experts, practitioners, and civil society. Carefully constructed panels, well-researched background notes, and clearly articulated problem statements to find relevant answers and an agenda moving forward created.
