At UN climate summit, India to flex its negotiating muscles


Associated Press

BENGALURU, India (AP) — The key priority for India at the upcoming U.N. climate conference will be how to pay for the transition away from fossil fuels for energy and industries to meet temperature limit targets, according to a senior official who’ll be part of the negotiations. India also wants to address compensation for poorer countries from rich, high-emitting nations who they say are responsible for climate change, known as “loss and damage,” in climate negotiations. Being both a climate vulnerable nation as well as a high emitting country, India’s position on loss and damage negotiations is still a work in progress. At the conference, it is likely to see it take a clearer stand on this issue.
