India sets target of carbon emissions by installing non fossil power projects


India has announced its climate change goals for the period 2021 to 2030. Besides setting out New Delhi’s overall green energy policies, it also acts as a template for negotiations at the coming Paris climate summit.

The question that negotiators will ask is whether the gap between India’s position and that of the West is large enough to result in a failed summit.

The potential for a rupture is there. India’s declared Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) is also a pointer to the areas of friction.

One is the question of international assistance, both in terms of money and technology, for the climate change targets of developing countries. If India insists that its targets are conditional on such assistance, talks will be in trouble. Most Western countries have little or no money. Most green technology is in private hands.
