India considers twin-track climate plans towards UN deal

Time is ticking. With less than nine months to go before the world leaders gather in Paris to sign a globally-binding climate deal, countries are developing their national climate pledges, known in climate jargon as intended nationally determined contributions (INDC).

The INDCs are post-2020 targets and goals that each country takes for itself to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases that cause global warming. They will be the building blocks of the new international climate change agreement expected to be finalised in Paris in December 2015.
