India concerned about limited carbon space: Javadekar


New Delhi, Dec 10  Indian Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar expressed concern over the limited carbon space available to developing countries for their growth imperatives.

In a bilateral meeting with Todd Stern, the head of the US delegation at the 20th session of the Conference of the Parties in Lima (COP-20), Javadekar discussed issues related to Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC), pre 2020 ambitions and elements of the Paris 2015 agreements including mitigation, adaptation, technology transfer framework, and capacity building.

Standing firm on India’s stance with respect to INDCs, he emphasized that the review of its targets by other countries was unacceptable.

The minister also highlighted that the principle of common but differentiated responsibility should be at heart of the Paris Agreement that will be discussed at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 2015.

Javadekar also reiterated the need for technology upgradation through joint collaborative research with the US.

Both the delegations agreed to continue to work jointly to make the outcome of Lima COP positive and acceptable, said an official statement.
