GARG, Amit; MENON-CHOUDHARY, Deepa  e  SHUKLA, P. R.. Aligning Energy use, Air Quality and Climate Change through Sustainable Development: A Case Study of Delhi. [online]. 2007, n.25, pp.96-103. ISSN 0121-4993.

High consumption of fossil fuels, increased greenhouse gas emissions and deterioration of local air quality have resulted from rapid industrialization and urbanization in India in the last decade. India has taken many initiatives to address these problems such as new automobile fuel policies, energy efficiency measures, promotion of renewable energy use, relocation of highly polluting industries, enforcing use of low emission fuels like CNG for public transport in large cities, anD introducing metro rail networks in megacities. This paper highlights results of adopted policies in Delhi showing relationships between air quality and climate change and having sustainable development as the driving force with focus on environmental and social dimensions.
