India's Climate Change Action Plan Summary
The five sections contain: Overview, Principles, Approach, Way Forward: Eight National Missions and Implementation of Missions: Institutional Arrangements.
The complete policy including section #6: Technical Document, which is over 40 page long, is available on PMO website (a large 16 MB PDF with 52 pages).
I haven't studied it yet but my first impression is that although the initiatives listed are welcome, but...
- without any firm commitment towards a target of emission reductions,
- without setting up any time-frame to achieve those reductions and
- without a commitment to phase out new energy generation from fossil fuels and their subsidies...
A longer, more detailed analysis including an official response from my organisation (CSM) will follow in coming days.
UPDATE 3-Jul: 'Climate Challenge India' coalition formed by CSM just released an interim assessment (PDF) I had the privilege to be one of the contributors to this report.
