Drawing the majority of its contributions from authors based at Indian universities and other research centers, India and Global Climate Change provides a developing world perspective on the debate. With a population of over one billion, and an economy that is undergoing substantial restructuring and greatly increased economic growth after a number of years of stagnation, India has an exceptional stake in the debate about climate change policy. Using the Indian example, this volume looks at such policy issues as the energy economy relationships that drive GHG emissions; the options and costs for restricting GHG emissions while promoting sustainable development; and the design of innovative mechanisms for expanded international cooperation with GHG mitigation.Thus, in multicriteria analysis, a technology resulting in low CO2 savings cannot be compensated by high SO2 savings. Specifically in DEA, technology or technologies that provide the best CO2 savings and technology or technologies that provide the SO2 savings are used to construct the ...
