India says position on climate based on UN framework, BAP
New Delhi: Government on Monday said its
position on the climate change negotiations is anchored in the
UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and Bali
Action Plan (BAP) adopted in the Conference of Parties (COP)
in Bali in 2007.
"India has argued in the international negotiating
fora that the COP must take actions in accordance with the
UNFCCC principles of equity and "common but differentiated" in
order to achieve its objectives," State Finance Minister Namo
Narai Meena said in reply to a query in Rajya Sabha.
He added that while actions of rich nations should
include deep and ambitious targets for emission reduction in
the second commitment period (post 2012) of the Kyoto Protcol,
the developing nations actions will depend on the support in
term of finance and technology from them.
"While India has already taken a number of steps on
its own to adapt and mitigate climate change impacts in the
interest of sustainable developments, it will take further
measures as defined under its National Action Plan on Climate
Change," the Minister added.
