  • Dear Sunita ,

    Thank you for the fine summing up of the complexities behind the negotiations at COP21. The Tiger Standard - tigerstandard.com - has evolved out of a 16 year old grassroots movement that originated in the Palaghat Gap of the Western Ghats . As a founder member I can tell you with certainty that this is the time for every serious player in the man made climate change space to come together and add to the basic road maps that will be set out by the Governments of the world .

    You will see from our internet site that the Tiger Standard , a wholly Indian entity , is going public and international . We invite you and your readers to join us both informally and formally in first volunteering and than in paid capacities in the run up and during the course of COP 21 and beyond .

    Thanks and regards ,

    R
