We'll also be joined by Shikha Lakhanpal, who spoke in the panel 'Governance, Power, and Resistance', and will share examples from India. Lastly, Dipti Vaghela, who spoke on the panel 'Market Solutions? Entrepreneurialism, Productive Uses, and Equity' will speak about her experience with community-focused renewable energy entrepreneurs in Myanmar.
