Critical Analysis on 'India's Position and Stand on Distributive Climate Justice'

Srishti Yadav [4]


Abstract: Through this paper the author aims to critically examine India's stand on distributive climate justice, especially in the context of COP26 held in Glasgow. The divergences between the developed and developing nations were clearly visible during the negotiations in the conference. The paper starts with explaining the concept of distributive justice and how it came to be used in the context of tackling climate change. The next section talks about important issues advocated by India in the conference such as phasing down of coal rather than phasing out and climatic finance. Then, the focus shifts on challenge faced by India dealing with the balancing of meeting international commitments and national interest. Further, an important aspect about how India will be able to meet its commitments of COP26 at both the international and domestic fronts becomes important to mention. The various challenges faced by the country in implementing its Climate change policy such as the lack of financing and transmission problems have been highlighted. The paper ends with giving some insights into the unique position of India and how it can emerge as a 'VISWAGURU' on tacking climate change.
