India recognises emissions challenge

India recognises emissions challenge
The challenge of cutting carbon emissions has been recognised by authorities in India.

At a conference in New Delhi attended by environment ministers from all state governments in the country, prime minister Manmohan Singh called for renewed efforts to tackle climate change, DPA reports.

He told the delegation that India is as concerned about carbon emissions as the rest of the world, despite so far refusing to accept legally binding emissions targets because developed countries have much larger emissions.

"Climate change is threatening our fragile ecosystems. We are staring at the prospect of an impending drought. Water scarcity is becoming a way of life. Pollution is a growing threat to our health and habitats," commented Mr Singh.

"There should be no doubt in anybody's mind that we fully recognise not just how important this issue is to our country's future but also our own obligation to address it."

An Indian government report released earlier this month revealed that the Asian country contributes five percent of carbon emissions around the globe.
