India's position at Cop 15

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'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.
