India's climate and energy policy strategy in a globalizing world: Changing global structures and international cooperation (INDGLOB)
This project explores whether India has the domestic capacity and international strategy for designing well-functioning policies for mitigating GHG emissions while ensuring adequate adaptation to the impacts of climate change.
The project will identify and explore domestic and international drivers and barriers in the climate policy development in India. At the domestic level, climate and energy policies cannot be adopted and implemented without critical levels of support from key interest groups, voters, and industries. We will study relationships between such actors and veto players in political institutions. At the international level, the development of the BASIC cooperation in the international climate negotiations has clearly affected India's national interest and strategy in international climate policy. We will study the two-level game between the international and national levels of policymaking.
