India’s Role in the International Climate Negotiations

By Scott Moore

For almost a quarter-century, the world has placed its faith in international agreements to address the threat of climate change. A binding global treaty, the reasoning goes, is the best way to ensure that greenhouse gas emissions are capped at a level low enough to prevent dangerous climate change. The effort to set emissions limits got off to a good start in 1992, when the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was first signed.
