As climate deadline looms, a look at what science says, what politics delivers, and what the economy demands

As climate deadline looms, a look at what science says, what politics delivers, and what the economy demands

Essence: We need to shift from sensational to strategic conversation while discussing about climate change and understand what the science says, politics delivers, and economy demands. Science has become better at attributing warming to human influence and extreme events to a changing climate. The world needs transformational change, but countries have more myopic outlooks. India is particularly vulnerable and hotspot of extreme weather events and must adopt a more climate-friendly development pathway for its own sake. Also, we need to shift the discourse from energy to the economy because there are very few sunrise sectors that are not low carbon. We need better technologies and business models along with policy and regulatory support to tackle the same.

  • To get an overview of climate change and its impact on India.
  • To understand, why we need to shift from sensational to strategic conversation.
  • To know what possible steps should be taken to tackle the same.
