With its population of over 1.2 billion and vulnerability to climate change, its history of low emissions and because of its democratic, cultural, political and scientific strengths, India is a key player in the global climate change debate. It has been playing an increasingly constructive role in international climate change negotiations. India's domestic climate policy is also becoming more ambitious as India progresses toward its 12th Five-Year Plan objectives for faster, sustainable and more inclusive growth. The country's objectives are achievable but will require faster and stronger action; efficient implementation strategies; greater co-ordination between states and among sectors; strengthening of public–private partnerships; and enhancing international collaborations.
