Climate Policy

India has recognised the threat of climate change and the need for transition to a low carbon economy. However, the cost involved in this transition gives rise to a range of opinions among stakeholders. A well informed dialogue between all stakeholders will help India move towards a sound development path that maintains a fine balance between growth and climate priorities.

To achieve this, the Climate Policy Programme supports low-carbon growth planning at the national and state levels through the preparation of cost curves and analytic tools that build the case for prioritising low carbon initiatives and enable better utilisation of resources available for transitioning the Indian economy to a low carbon growth path. The climate policy programme also supports implementation of key low-carbon growth initiatives, such as modernisation of the Indian brick sector and adoption of cleaner building materials.

To deepen engagement of stakeholders on energy and climate change issues, the programme supports national and regional level conferences, consultations and roundtables. These bring together policymakers, Indian industry, media, climate scientists, non-governmental organisations and other thought leaders, opinion makers and stakeholders from across India to deliberate on India's energy security and climate policy agendas.
