In a recent interview with The Indian Express, CEEW Chairperson Mr Suresh Prabhu argued that India and China should be treated differently at the global climate talks.
Prabhu told The Indian Express. "While India and China do have some similarities, the fact is that on most social and economic indicators, China is way ahead of India. But because they have allied so closely at the negotiations, India and China are seen as together. As a result, the international community is expecting the same kind of climate actions from India as it has been demanding from China... India's situation is very different and everyone is aware of that. India must fight to break this hyphenation with China."
