These two are to be followed up with a third, which would look at the manner in which the principle of equity can be operationalised in the new global agreement. The study on greenhouse gas emissions trajectory, which is closely linked to the state of economy and energy matrix, has been commissioned to a group of three institutes - TERI, Integrated Research and Action for Development, and Institute of Economic Growth.
