Climate Change and India-Some Major Issues and Policy Implications
AbstractThe paper examines the genesis of Climate Change which has been referred to as the defining human development issue of our generation. Also studied is the impact of this problem in the global as well as Indian context. India is not immune from the impact of global warming and climate change. Major international developments related to Climate Change including the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change(UNFCCC ), 1992 and Kyoto Protocol are described along with significant meetings like those at Bali and Bangkok and outcomes at these international exchanges. While comparing perspectives of developed and developing countries on Climate Change, a detailed examination is made of the issues involved and Indiaâ€™s view point, especially the arguments for India to take up GHG abatement and our response to each of these at the international forums.
