CAPACITY BUILDING NEEDS
India’s efforts will require proper training and upgrading of skills across sectors. While no firm assessments have been made, it is evident that substantial resources will be required to implement capacity building programmes both nationally and across the states to address climate change challenges. It is expected that the international mechanism will support such initiatives including formation of Thematic Knowledge Networks, further expand activities under Global Technology Watch Group, establishing more intensive state centric knowledge and awareness creating activities and training of professionals in different aspects of renewable energy and supporting research and development institutions for pre-competitive research.
Though a firm projection is difficult, rough estimates indicate that around 2.5% of Government’s salary budget would be required for capacity building initiatives, while some part of it would need to be financed internationally.
