Indian prime minister Modi is re-elected. What now for climate policy and mitigation?

India is the world’s third largest emitter of greenhouse gases and is set to become the world’s most populous country by 2025, thus it is by sheer size one of the most important actors in global climate governance. What will five new years of Modi/BJP government mean for climate policy and measures?

Methane: a climate blind spot?
