India is faced with the challenge of sustaining its rapid economic growth while dealing with the global threat of climate change. This threat emanates from accumulated greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere, anthropogenically generated through long-term and intensive industrial growth and high consumption lifestyles in developed countries.

The Human Development Report 2007/2008 shows that climate change is not just a future scenario. Increased exposure to droughts, floods and storms is already destroying opportunity and reinforcing inequality. Meanwhile, there is now overwhelming scientific evidence that the world is moving towards the point at which irreversible ecological catastrophe becomes unavoidable.

While the climate debate is raging, the climate negotiations themselves are barely moving. Finger pointing seems to be the name of the game, with each negotiating bloc focused on passing the bill for solving the climate crisis onto the others. The process as a whole is in impasse, and it's time to admit it, as it's time to admit that disagreements about fairness and equity are at the centre of the impasse.

The purpose of this document is to propose the outlines of a broadly acceptable framework that addresses the following issues: differentiated targets and timetables; forests as carbon sinks; market-based mechanisms; adaptation; research, development and deployment; technology cooperation; and finance.

Climate action is produced by Sustainable Development International in partnership with the UNEP to encourage and assist governments and business to lower greenhouse gas emissions.
