NEW DELHI (Hindustan Times): India is against a mandatory review of its climate action plan before 2030 but is open to market-based carbon pricing to encourage emission reduction, environment secretary Ashok Lavasa told HT weeks ahead of an international summit that aims to nail down a binding agreement to limit global warming. Lavasa, who will be heading India’s official negotiating team at the fortnight-long Paris climate summit next month, said in the interview New Delhi is looking for a pact that is “balanced, comprehensive” and “under” the principles of the two-decade-old United Nations climate convention.
