  • This disconnect between politics and policy is not a recent development, though it manifests differently across political divides.

  • It’s time for SAARC nations to start pushing common concerns impacting their citizens.
  • To achieve the goal of limiting temperature rise to 1.5 per cent of pre-industrial level, carbon dioxide emissions need to be 45 per cent below 2010 level by 2030.
  • IMD observed in its temperature outlook that even though weak La Nina conditions are prevailing right now in the equatorial Pacific Ocean, they may strengthen during the winter season.
