Looks like the gossip is that India has taken a crucial step in the Long term Cooperation meetings. They are supposedly wanting to delete one whole paragraph on the sources of funding.
Ever since time existed,India has been discouraging the finance in form of bilateral Aid in the negotiations like the ODAs and US AID. But is this new stance going to affect the adaptation and mitigation activities back home?
It could limit the scale and the effect of mitigation and adaptation strategies in India as well as make the poverty alleviation programs .We cant say much , but rumour has it that India had become very aggressive.
In the LCA meetings the Annex 1 countries have always swung around some big words and tried to avoid talk about the numbers and targets they are setting
We have our ears open and our boxing gloves ready!
