Chapter Summary

The International Sustainable Energy Initiative (ISEA) records that India is a signatory to no less than 38 individual relevant bilateral or multilateral treaties. These treaties reflect India's changing external alliances, domestic priorities and energy initiatives from the 1950s. India is party to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) which has the dual promotional and regulatory functions. Its mandate is to develop nuclear energy. The negotiation of a treaty to address climate change and its effects was formally initiated by the UN General Assembly and the specialized agencies. In 1988 and 1989, the General Assembly determined that 'climate change is the common concern of mankind' and urged governments and nongovernmental organizations to collaborate in a concerted effort to prepare, as a matter of urgency, a framework convention on climate change. India, as the largest functioning democracy, has always implemented laws and policies, which recognize the very specific needs of its peoples.
