The Ministry of Environment and Forests is renamed and climate change is on top of agenda
The Union Ministry of Environment and Forests is now the Union Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change.
The nomenclature change clearly signals change in priorities and is government’s acknowledgement of the challenge that climate change poses. As the government braces to face the tests that lie ahead, we take a look at national and state climate action plans that have existed till now. Will the Modi regime come up with something exceptional or will they take forward the policies that already exist?
