A plan for India

Print edition : October 03, 2014

The key recommendations mentioned in the final statement of the conference on “Climate Change and Sustainable Development: Equity and Post-2015 Challenge” held at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, in August:

  • By offering bold and ambitious mitigation commitments, India should be seen as being part of the solution.
  • India should not be defensive about advancing the equity argument but aggressively push it so that it becomes central to the negotiations.
  • India should engage with various country groups proactively to come up with a formulation of an equity structure that would be acceptable to most developing countries.
