India In No Rush To Deliver UN Climate Pledge, Says Minister

  • Date: 25/03/15

India will not be rushed into delivering its contribution to a proposed 2015 global climate change pact, its environment minister has said.

Prakash Javadekar told the Times of India he wanted to see what further climate policies developed countries were proposing before making any commitments.

“Developed countries need to act and take ambitious targets for 2015-20,” he said.

“Our plan will also be reflected in our Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) – but before the world discusses our INDCs, we will discuss their pre-2020 action plan.”

He added: “You must remember what Prime Minister Narendra Modi said about climate change when he was asked about any such pressure – he said we were not in a habit of taking pressure.”
