BENGALURU, India (AP) — India officially takes up its role as chair of the Group of 20 leading economies for the coming year Thursday and it’s putting climate at the top of the group’s priorities. Programs to encourage sustainable living and money for countries to transition to clean energy and deal with the effects of a warming world are some of the key areas that India will focus on during its presidency, experts say. Some say the country will use the position to boost its climate credentials and act as a bridge between the interests of industrialized nations and developing ones. India has made considerable moves toward renewable energy but remains one of the world’s current top emitters of planet-warming gases.
