Policy Message for Mitigating India’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions
Between the developed and developing countries, it is the latter which are more vulnerable to climate change even though the developed countries have been the primary contributors to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions till date. Further, it is ironical that the ones who are the most vulnerable to climate change are the least capable to mitigate it while those who are responsible for causing it in the first place are most unwilling to do their part in resolving it. There is therefore much consensus in the climate change literature on problem statement, but none in finding solutions. Given that the developing countries have to fend for themselves in combating climate change, this concluding chapter summarizes the broad policy lessons of this study.
