Emissions intensity of GDP

A Planning Commission note to estimate India's carbon intensity. Over the fifteen year period from 1990 to 2005, India's emissions intensity declined by 17.6%, from 1.785 in 1990 to 1.471 in 2005. It says assuming a faster GDP growth of 8% per year, we can expect a further decline in the emissions intensity to 1.216, i.e., a reduction of 17.3% by 2020 from the 2005 base.
