‘India Must Build Its Own Climate Change Narrative’

COP 28 has opened in the UAE amid familiar alarm bells being rung about what little the world has done to combat climate change.

In this edition of Talking Point, Dr Arvind Gupta, head of the Vivekananda International Foundation, and PK Hangzo, Associate Fellow, discuss the challenges for India to stay on the development track at a time when the US-led bloc is pushing to outlaw coal, oil, and gas.

Dr Gupta argues that India should build its own narrative, focusing on the need for the developed world to address its unsustainable lifestyles. Also, India should lead the Global South in rejecting any move to impose prescriptions on agriculture that would hit our food security.
