Developing countries, such as India, are resisting curbs that they feel will obstruct their economy’s growth. The government is committed to reducing the aviation sector emissions in the long run, but it would not comply with the global market-based measure. New Delhi’s concern stems from the decision to cap the amount of carbon dioxide produced by international civil aviation at the amount produced in 2020. The aviation sector in India is far from mature — growing at a rate of 23 percent annually. While effectively rejecting the global market-based mechanism, India has adopted the resolution to address emissions from the sector. Over the next few years, the focus would be on designing the offsets system, the rules, and regulations for it; New Delhi needs to be an active member of this process, putting forward substantive suggestions that address the need to limit carbon dioxide emissions while not obstructing the growth of the international aviation sector. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
