In this webinar, we will aim to discuss three broad questions of principle that ought to form the foundations of climate legislation in India.
- Should we pass a framework climate law that acts as an overarching basis for climate policy in India or trigger a series of upgrades to existing laws (EPA, Air Act, etc.) to make their jurisdiction over climate explicit?
- Should an Indian climate law guarantee a ‘right to climate’ or aim to maximise utility/low-carbon development?
- Should the law articulate an ‘outcome duty’ to place a cap on GHG emissions or design ‘procedural duties’ to mainstream the climate issue in all levels of governance?
