India must ensure equitable action for all in next steps of its climate change negotiations, says ActionAid India

Reacting to India’s ratification of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, Sandeep Chachra, Executive Director of ActionAid India said:

"This year India and its citizens have been on the front line of climate change. Today’s efforts to fast-track the entry into force of the Paris Agreement is a clear indication that India both wants and needs urgent action at home, and internationally.

"India now has a vital role to play in ensuring that its hard-won inclusion of climate justice in the Agreement becomes a key outcome and not just an empty phrase.  In the next round of UN talks in Morocco this November, it must make sure that the next steps that will be negotiated really do reflect fairness and equitable action for all."
