Policies That are Climate-Friendly
Apropos the Edit, ‘India Should Lead in Climate Technology’ (Dec 7), the country took a climate-friendly step by leading the International Solar Alliance. However, this is just the first step, and more needs to be done. We are already reeling under the increasing impact of natural disasters such as floods and cyclones, for which climate change is the biggest causal factor. Hence, in such a scenario, we need to immediately take proactive steps to mitigate carbon emissions. Moreover, such experience will also stand us in good stead with respect to our support for climate change concerns of island countries such as the Maldives.
