New proposals should come from developed nations

New Delhi : Ahead of the environment summit in Paris, Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar  said the developed countries should come out with “more reasonable proposals” to fight climate change.

“India has pledged for an ambitious action plan to fight climate change. We hope for an equitable and just climate agreement in Paris, but the developed world will have to come out with more reasonable proposals,” he said during an online discussion with experts and citizens on ‘MyGov’ platform.

The minister referred to French President Francois Hollande’s statement that unless the developed world committed more finance and technological support, the Paris meeting could be a failure.

“I think, with this warning, coming from the French president, who is the host, the developed world will come out with more reasonable proposals,” he added.

Meanwhile, the minister also invited suggestions from people on various issues related to the environment.

Javadekar also announced that the best ideas would be awarded with a cash prize and a visit to a wildlife sanctuary.

The modalities of the contest would be announced on ‘MyGov’ platform soon, he said.

On October 2, India in its climate action plan pledged to cut emission intensity by 33-35 percent over the next 15 years.

The action plans of different countries would serve as the basis of negotiating an agreement, applicable to all countries, with an aim of keeping global warming below two degrees Celsius during the crucial 21st meeting of the Conference of Parties on Climate Change due in Paris, France, from November 30 to December 11.
