Introduction

During the 27th Conference of Parties, India, through the Union Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change, submitted its Long-Term Low Emission Development Strategy (‘LT-LEDS’) report (‘Report’) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (‘UNFCCC’). The LT-LEDS has been prepared within the context of India’s right to an equitable and fair share in the global carbon budget to ensure that India’s growth and economic transformation are not constrained and that India’s energy requirements, commensurate with its developing economy, are adequately addressed.

This Article presents the essence of the 121-page Report from the authors’ perspective by navigating through India’s objectives, strategies and commitments concerning climate change.
