Aware of the need to work together, India has committed to help its smaller neighbours cope with effects of climate change. Stressing that there is no rift with neighbours on the issue, Minister of State for Environment and Forests Jairam Ramesh said that the process to help nations like Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Maldives to build or strengthen existing institutions working on climate change issues has already begun. He handed a cheque of $160,000 to the Kathmandu-based International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development.
