Bonn challenge
The UN climate change conference in Bonn is the next step for government  to implement the Paris climate change agreement and accelerate the transformation  to sustainable , resilient and climate safe development. The Paris agreement entered in to force last November and the era of implementation  has begun .
This conference clarifies the enabling of framework that will make the agreement fully operational.

INDIA’S ROLE
India is focusing on the imperatives of ensuring adequate financing for mitigation and adaption. India’s progress in reducing the intensity of its greenhouse gas emission per unit of GDP by 20-25% from 2005 levels by 2020 based on the commitment made in Copenhagen in 2009 has been positive. It is on track to achieve the national pledge  under the 2015 Paris agreement for a 33-35% cut in emission intensity per unit of growth from the same base year by 2050, however, the impact  of extreme weather event such as drought and flood that would have a bearing on economic growth.
The country has chalked out an ambitious policy on renewable energy, hoping to generate 175 gigawatts of power from green sources by 2022.
India’s aim to have only electric cars by 2030 to across the country.

For the world - It is in this context that the rich countries must give up their rigid approach towards the demands of low and middle income countries, and come to an early resolution on the question of financing of mitigation,adapion and compensation of course.

A Road Ahead- India could further raise its ambition in the use of  green technologies and emission cuts, which would give it the mantle of global climate leadership.
India should make strict laws to restrict polluting factories, and also focussing on crop residue issues.   India needs to invest more in renewable energy such as wind and solar energy, and also should have more air-quality monitoring stations in the country.
India has already banned old diesel/ petrol vehicles in few states.
By April 2018 it will adapt Bharat- VI  stage engine to control pollution.
