India: addressing energy security and climate change

Addressing climate change mitigation and adaptation involves many stakeholders, cuts across short and long timeframes, and requires that all development projects be assessed for their sensitivity to climate concerns. This integration of climate concerns in the development process has been mainstreamed in India through high-level multistakeholder committees. The National Committee to Assess the Impacts of Climate Change is evaluating the impact of climate change on key development activities, and assessing options to mitigate climate risks. At the national level, the integration of climate change in national development is guided by the Prime Minister's Council on Climate Change, which provides overall strategic guidance on mainstreaming climate change in development, identifies key intervention priorities, and monitors the implementation of these interventions.
