Critical minerals, green hydrogen, climate change - the Australia-India partnership is soaring
In this interview with senior research scholar Rami Niranjan Desai, Dr. Robert Glasser, head of the ASPI (Australian Strategic Policy Institute) Climate and Security Policy Centre, talks about the importance of the Australia-India partnership in tackling climate change and the crucial partnership between the two countries on critical minerals. Australia's resources of critical minerals like antimony, cobalt, lithium, manganese ore, niobium, tungsten and vanadium, rank in the top five globally. Australia is the world's top producer of lithium, rutile and the second largest producer of zircon and rare earth elements. Glasser was previously the United Nations Secretary General’s Special Representative for Disaster Risk Reduction and a member of the Secretary General’s Senior Management Team.
