India's stand at Copenhagen is clear. It is based on the “polluter pays” principle. India makes it clear that what is being negotiated at Copenhagen is not a new international framework for climate change and it is also not a post-Kyoto treaty.
India maintains that what will be negotiated in Copenhagen is fresh emission reduction target for the developed nations along with a second commitment period under the Kyoto Protocol. An Action Plan would enable more effective implementation of the UNFCCC objectives.
