India and China will hold a joint workshop on National Action Plan on Climate Change in New Delhi on Wednesday to share experiences on scientific, technical and policy aspects of global warming in the two countries.
The decision to hold the workshop ahead of the Copenhagen summit on climate change in December has been taken in view of the National Action Plans drawn by both the countries on almost similar lines such as energy efficiency, renewable energy and sustainable development.
Experts from both countries will deliberate and share ideas on their plans, policy and action on mitigation, forests, adaptation and progress in climate change science.
The event will also create an opportunity for a bilateral meeting between Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh and his Chinese counterpart Xie Zhenhua, according to a statement from the ministry.
The meeting would discuss domestic initiatives, issues in multilateral negotiations (mitigation, adaptation, technology transfer and finance) and outlook for the Copenhagen meeting.
