NEW DELHI: Ahead of the crucial UN climate talks in Paris later this year, India would hold a meeting, of ‘Like-Minded Developing Countries’ (LMDCs) in September, on climate change to build a consensus on issues related to adaptation, mitigation and financing.
The LMDCs include a group of developing countries which would negotiate together as a group at the international platform. India has been talking to BASIC, LMDCs and SAARC nations to ensure that the new legal agreement on climate
change is based on historical responsibility of polluters and right to grow for developing nations. India is in the process of finalising its ‘Intended Nationally Determined Contributions’ (INDCs) which would be submitted to the United Nations next month.
All countries are either in the process or have submitted their INDCs in the run up to the Paris Climate Change Conference.
