Technological partnerships

by, India pushes for common responsibility

Technological partnerships


Same might say that India's projected three-or fourfold growth of emmissions by 2030 under business as usual is much too high an estimate, but given the high economic growth rates achieved by India in recent decades this is a realistic projection.

Without the development of low-carbon technologies and the transfer of technology, developing countries will continue to emulate the emissions-intensive growth patterns seen in the developed world.

But alongside well-defined intellectual property rights, technological innovation can be created through partnerships between developed and developing countries at much lower cost than if these were driven solely by the developed world.

It is for this reason that US companies such as GE are carrying out substantial reseach and development activities in India.

We need a more constuructive spirit between developed and developing countries if we are to reach an effective agreement in Copenhagen.

To achieve this, the leadership of developed nations must convince their public on the principles and scientific realities under which they will take proactive commitments.

At the same time, major emergoing economies such as India should not hesitate to put forward their own national action plans as part of global efforts, and which would help them achieve sutainable development.
