Scientific evidence of the link between growing rates of anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and climate change is growing. How to manage this global common resource has become one of the most important policy debates in recent times. The critical question is how to engage nations in long-term effort to protect the global climate. India is one of the most vulnerable countries to negative climate impacts. Also emissions from India are growing rapidly in recent years. It, thus, becomes imperative to investigate what role India should play in the global effort of mitigating GHG emissions. This chapter places India in the global context in terms of GHG emissions. It then explores the stand India should take in international negotiations, and discusses various policy measures India has already taken, and can take domestically to mitigate emissions in an efficient and equitable manner.

Keywords:   climate change, greenhouse gases, carbon emissions, mitigation, vulnerability, India, Kyoto protocol
