This seed proposal is based on the emission reduction commitment submitted by Russia for the UNFCCC's 2015 climate negotiations. It was created by a Climate CoLab staff member. We invite other CoLab members to link to this proposal or to use it as a starting point for creating new proposals of their own. The government of India has not reviewed or endorsed this proposal.
