India seeks to resolve climate disputes
New Delhi: India is making two proposals for the U.N. climate summit in Cancun in hopes of redefining its global image as a constructive negotiator by helping to resolve disputes that have stymied agreement on curbing greenhouse gas emissions.
The two proposals address the monitoring of national emissions cuts and sharing of environmentally friendly technologies with poor and developing nations.
They offer rich and poor countries a middle ground, while leaving the most contentious issues for future debate.
Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh said Saturday, the eve of the Cancun summit, that India has worked hard to shed its old obstructionist image and is anxious to be part of a solution on global warming.
