Climate Change Negotiations – UNFCCC, COP, Other Conventions and Protocols

India to press for equity at climate talks despite pressure

India has been engaging with Small Island Developing States and Least Developed Countries along with developed nations to evolve a consensus.

  1. Two areas of failure in the climate process are creation of the $100-billion annual climate finance fund, and transfer of green technologies.
  2. The other contested area is that of transparency norms for use of funds.
  3. The overall approach of the rich countries is seen as expanding the base of contributors, while shrinking the base of recipients.
  4. India is also taking the lead in demanding the major share of the carbon space for the developing world.
