India in Climate Change Negotiations

PRIO Policy Brief

Sinha, Uttam & Åshild Kolås (2017) India in Climate Change Negotiations, PRIO Policy Brief, 10. Oslo: PRIO.

​A consistent Indian demand in climate change negotiations is green technology transfer from the developed to the developing countries, and a longstanding principle is that of Common But Differentiated Responsibilities and Respective Capabilities. Across political affiliations, Indian policymakers agree that India needs to be better equipped to tackle challenges related to climate change adaptation, and to improve preparedness for drought, flooding, and other extreme weather events.
