Meeting on Climate Change
17
Mar '08
These days business, government, civil society and media persons are all talking about one thing: climate change.

Related to this are the questions on the Bali Roadmap, how it affects India, what needs to be done now, and the post-2012 scenario for the carbon trade.

It is worthwhile to pause and reflect on some recent statistics. The latest Economic Survey 2007-'08 confirms the Indian economy has moved to a “higher growth phase”.

At current market prices, India's GDP is projected at Rs 47 lakh crores - the first time the Indian economy will cross $1 trillion.

The Union Budget 2008-'09 has made provisions to set up an institutional mechanism to encourage resource use efficiency, renewable energy and clean technologies.

Finally, with the Indian DNA approving over 800 CDM projects worth an investment of Rs. 70,000 crores, India has the capability to be the world leader in sustainable development.

CII-ITC Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Development, with the support of PricewaterhouseCoopers Pvt Ltd, are organizing a Meeting on Climate Change: The Journey Ahead on 17th March 2008 at 1500 hrs at India Habitat Centre, Magnolia Hall, Lodi Road, New Delhi.

Ms. Bharti Gupta Ramola, Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers Pvt Ltd; Mr. R K Sethi, Chairman CDM, Executive Board, UNFCCC & Director (Climate Change), Ministry of Environment and Forests and Mr. S. Sandilya, Chairman, CII National Committee on Environment, will share their valuable inputs at the meeting.

The programme is a platform for CDM project proponents, industry, policy-makers and others to learn the highlights of the Bali Roadmap, India's plans to progress towards a less carbon-intensive growth path and how a collaborative approach may be forged together.
