India’s national strategy to fight global warming

Jul 08, 2008

India has recently released its much-awaited document titled National Action Plan on Climate Change. The plan identifies eight priority areas including solar energy, water conservation, agriculture, sustainable habitats, among others, to tackle the threats arising of a changing climate.

Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh released the National Action Plan on Climate Change on June 30, 2008.

Prepared under the guidance and direction of Prime Minister’s Council on Climate Change, the Plan focuses on eight priority areas. These are: solar energy, enhanced energy efficiency, sustainable habitat, conserving water, sustaining the Himalayan ecosystem, a “Green India”, sustainable agriculture, and strategic knowledge platform for climate change.

The National Mission of Solar Energy, occupies a pre-eminent place, whose success, Prime Minister said, has the potential of transforming the face of India.

While releasing the Plan, the prime minister emphasised the global dimension of the challenge of climate change, which demands a global and cooperative effort on the basis of the principle of equity.

India, he said, was ready to play its role as a responsible member of the international community and to make its own contribution.

He added that India believed that every citizen of this planet should have an equal share of the planetary atmospheric space and therefore, long-term convergence of per capita GHG emissions was the only equitable basis for a global agreement to tackle climate change.

The National Action Plan would evolve and change in the light of changing circumstances and therefore invited broader interaction with civil society as a means to further improve the various elements of the Plan.
