Islamic declaration on climate change on August 18

This declaration is an important intervention by religious leaders and will act as a crucial rallying call ahead of the UN climate change negotiations which are to be held in Paris in December. Wider previous consultation with leading Muslim scholars, academics and faith groups have been compiled to be part of the declaration. It will be the key outcome of a two-day symposium – on August 17 and 18 – on climate change here.

The declaration will also be important for India, as with approximately 180 million Muslims, India has the third largest population of Muslims outside the Arab world, next only to Indonesia and Pakistan. India, one of the leading countries from the developing world, has been part of the climate change negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
